Unit 2, lesson 11 <a>

What is the “a” in css style sheet?

Hi @kbardelli,

The “a” is some of the most impactful CSS you can apply to a website in terms of color scheme! This is because it colors your links! AND you can control the link’s colors when they are:

  • a:link - a normal, unvisited link
  • a:visited - a link the user has visited
  • a:hover - a link when the user mouses over it
  • a:active - a link the moment it is clicked

For more information, w3schools is a great resource! I like that they have examples with their documentation.

Hope that helps!

Thank you so much! I was doing the lesson and thought - “Why would they add this new code when it has never been introduced!”

Thanks again.
