Hi All -  I need some CSS help here.

In my stylesheet I have an ID selector like this.

    #newVisitors { ... stuff }

I assigned this ID selector a class

    #newVisitors .cbBlurb{ ....stuff}

Now what I need to do is style a <h2> element within the cbBlurb class that's within #newVisitors

I tried this

    #newVisitors .cbBlurb h2{ ....stuff}

and this

    #newVisitors h2.cbBlurb{ ....stuff}

and this

    #newVisitors .cbBlurb.h2{ ....stuff}

but none of them work.  

What do I need to do in order to get this to work?

Thanks

The first one you tried is correct but alternatively you can use the second one and apply class cbBlurb to the h2 element as well as its parent element.

using the first notation here is some html that shows how to use it:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 <head>
  <title> Q_27656397 </title>
  <style type="text/css">
	#newVisitors { border: solid 3px black; background-color: green; }
	#newVisitors .cbBlurb { background-color: silver; }
	#newVisitors .cbBlurb h2 { color: red; }
  </style>
 </head>
 <body>
	<h2> standard black h2 </h2>
  <div id="newVisitors">
		<h2> black h2 on green in #newVisitors </h2>
		<div class="cbBlurb">
			other text in .cbBlurb
			<h2> red h2 </h2>
		</div>
  </div>
 </body>
</html>
