Different Formats For Tables

Hi Experts,

I have CSS written for table, tbody, thead, td, etc., which works the way I wanted. Here, I not using any classes or ids.

My question is how can I easily use 1 class for the table that will apply to all sub-elements like tbody, thead, etc., where if I create another table without any class, this CSS will not affect it?

Thank you,
APD Toronto

Use the class selector in your CSS for each of the elements you want to style

table { ... }
thead { ... }
td { ... }

.someTable { ... }
.someTable thead { ... }
.someTable td { ... }

Do I just assign class to the table element or to each thead, td?
Chris StanyonCommented:
You can assign it to the table. This CSS...

.someTable thead { ... }

...will style a thead inside of 'something' that has the .someTable class - that could be your table - it could even be a DIV.
