for example i have made a static page that uses a top div that is
"fixed" across the top of the page.
The CSS defaults to the external one for all browsers, but then checks
for IE 6 and 7 and makes certain adjustments to make them render right.
I have a class that I use on to style identical div tags across the
For example there are 6 div tags in total, but because the first one
comes before the title element, it needs some special formatting and is
stored as an ----> ID <----- namely:
#twod <----------- set as ID because it's a unique instance in the
height:356px; <------------- unique
background-color:#330066; <-------- in another class .dark
color:#FFFFFF; <--------- in another class .dark
margin:0 0 0 0; <---------- in another class .otherdiv
padding:87.5px 0 0 0; <------------------ unique
they are the only two unique properties of this div from the other 5
which i just use a ----> class <------ for.
however this div does have some other properties, but they are all
replicated elswhere. As I said I use an ID for the first div as its
only used once and is a unique element so its good practice to make it
I just wanted to make it more elegant by actually taking use of the
cascading side of things.
I know I can apply multiple classes as I do in the page with <div
the question is can I use that but then apply the unique settings of
for example <div class="otherdiv dark" id="twod">? this is simply so I
can re-use classes. It works really well as it is, but I want to be
able to take use of the recycling of code.
Is it possible I could change "twod" to a class and have <div
class="otherdiv dark twod">?
or will this break things?
any comments are appreciated
