To Remember – CSS Specificity Value


From Code Academy:

As we mentioned, certain selectors will “override” others if they have a greater specificity value. ul li p { is more specific CSS than just p {, so when CSS sees tags that are both <p> tags and happen to be inside unordered lists, it will apply the more specific styling (ul li p {) to the text inside the lists.
