CSS How to Make a Website Customizing Colors and Fonts Use Classes in CSS

What would happen... using class selectors

At 3:00, Nick uses nav a.selected to apply CSS to a new class he has created. Just wondering why you don't use .selected instead. Would that also work?

Hi Michelle,

That would also work but would target every element with a class of "selected".

Nick's example specifically targets anchor tags within the nav element with that class.

Hope that helps
