    • Parent and children elements
    • Each element can have an id and/or one or more class attributes
  • 9. DOM (Cont.)
  • 10. Elements id
    • Uniquely identifies the element
    • <div id= “footer”>Thanks for visiting</div>
    • That div’s id is “footer”. Should only be one “footer” id.
  • 11. Elements class
    • Multiple page elements can have the same type of class
    • <p class= “warning”>Sorry….</p>
    • <span class= “warning error”>Please try again</span>
    • Classifies elements as a “warning”
    • Multiple classes on an element are seperated by spaces
  • 12. CSS Selectors
    • # selects an element via id
      • div#heading
        • <div id= “heading”>
    • . selects an element via class
      • div.heading
        • <div class= “heading”>

    • $( ‘p’) .css (‘font-size’, ‘35px’);
  • 15. jQuery Statements
    • $('#one').css('color', 'green');
    • $('.not_first').css('font-size', '22pt');
    • $('p.first').html('This is better');
  • 16. Document Ready Event
    • When our document is ready, run our function
    • <script>
    • $(document).ready(function() {
    • alert( ‘Welcome to my page!’);
    • });
    • </script>
    • This is a fairly common code snippet
