Nesting Selectors
It is possible to apply a style for a selector within a selector. In the example below, one style is specified for all p elements, one style is specified for all elements with class="marked", and a third style is specified only for p elements within elements with class="marked":

Example
p { c o l o r : b l u e ; t e x t a l i g n : c e n t e r ; } . m a r k e d { b a c k g r o u n d c o l o r : r e d ; } . m a r k e dp { c o l o r : w h i t e ; }
