Why did Nick placed the body in the /GENERAL/ section if he only want to change the font-family? Why not keep it in /HEA

Why did Nick placed the body tag in the /GENERAL/ section to set the font-family? Why not keep it in /HEADING/ together with h1 & h2 where in this section their font-family is also selected? Would it not be more organized this way?

I think you've explained it yourself when you said "is also". Settings organized under "Heading" would normally be used only for the heading, but a setting that is (or might be) used in more than one area would go under "General".

Got it. Thank you.

He wanted to set a general/page-default font. So I feel it would be a better fit for the "general" section. It really doesnt matter where you put it, as long as it makes sense and is organized for yourself. Or if you're working on a team, you should follow whatever standards they're using.

Thank you. Now it's clear.
