Creating Selectors

A selector is a way to associate HTML content with style settings based on various information—most often its type, class, or ID. Sometimes the word "selector" is used interchangeably with the term "style," but a selector can be much more than just a simple style.

When you create a new stylesheet, it already has many selectors in it. If necessary, you can create new selectors of varying levels of complexity.

You can create selectors from the Stylesheet Editor or from a content file (i.e., topic, snippet, master page). If you use the Stylesheet Editor, you can create more kinds of selectors. If you use the content file, the process can sometimes be faster.
