Example text

For example, it’s often helpful to style the first line of a paragraph differently than the rest. But, given the vast array of devices, browsers, and screen sizes your site will be rendered on, there’s simply no way to predict and define ahead of time what text encapsulates the first line. qxd 11/1/06 1:44 PM Page 23 CHAPTER 2 ■ THE LANGUAGE OF STYLE SHEETS Pseudo-Classes Pseudo-classes are best understood by way of the anchor element, typically used for links between (X)HTML documents.
