CSS Attribute Selectors

CSS has the ability to target HTML elements based on any one of their attributes.

  • ID
  • Class 
  • Rel

We already know about classes and IDs let’s see example for rel attributes.

  1. <a href="http://BalajiIT.co.in">BalajiIT Solutions</a> 
  2. <a href="http://google.com">Goooooogle</a>
  3. <a href="http://yahoo.com/">yahooooooo</a>

Then you wanted to style each link slightly differently. The traditional way would probably be to give each link a class name in which to target, but that requires additional markup which is always a nice thing to avoid so This is the perfect use for attribute selectors.

a[href="http://BalajiIT.co.in"] { color: red; } 
a[href="http://google.com"] { color: black; }
a[href="http://yahoo.com"] { color: green; }
