Adding the "id" to an unordered list

When is it preferable, or when should one, use the "class" tag instead of the "id" tag?

1 Answer

The "class" attribute is useful when you want to apply the same styles to multiple elements. A class name can be used more than once on a page. Also, an element can have multiple classes assigned to it, separated by spaces.

An id attribute value can only be used once on the page. And there can only be one value. You can't assign multiple id's to one element.
