HTML or Body
What difference does it make if I select HTML or body tag in my CSS. They both seem to apply to all elements on the page.

Probably no difference, but there's no purpose to do so. The reason you select the body is because thats where your content is. Unless there's things you can stylize in the head, there would be no reason to do this.
