Styles can target specific elements, IDs, class names or combination these elements to write greater control over specific style application. The main purpose of using CSS is to separate structure and presentation.

As you create files for the web understanding the rules governing the naming is vitally important. If your files are not named correctly certain pages might become inaccessible or just not work properly. Remember the web pages contain links to other web pages and assets. If file naming isn’t handled correctly your site’s functionality can really suffer. Fortunately, the rules for file naming conventions on the web are pretty easy to follow.
