What is the class element and what do the different attributes do?

lets say we have 10 divs, and we want to style 5 of them, we can give these 5 divs classes so we can target them in css

different attributes allow us to customize different elements. What each attribute does, you can check in online documentation (MDN is good)


Can datafeeds fro tables created with HTML be from a backend database, e.g customer orders rather than inputed manually?

if the table contains input elements, then yes, depending on your back-end language you might need to give the input elements a name with value of array, for example:

<input type="text" name="email[]">

Why if I delete the CSS part in the head the image in the unordered list isn’t shown?
