How is the "class" linked to the action of viewing a specific <a><li> element?
Usually, an element is called upon because it was addressed through code. I don't see that happening with the "class" attribute. How does the code understand that when someone is viewing a specific page it needs to highlight the corresponding <nav> element.

I don't see "class" being used in this video. But I do see where the CSS targets "nav" directly by tag name to set the color.
If I missed something, please provide the time index for the part you are looking at that involves class.
