3.4 Summary

Perhaps the most fundamental aspect of Cascading Style Sheets is the cascade itselfthe process by which conflicting declarations are sorted out and from which the final document presentation is determined. Integral to this process is the specificity of selectors and their associated declarations, and the mechanism of inheritance.
