Type Selector

Element type selector matches elements by node name. This selector explicitly specifies the name of an element in the document tree.

An element type selector selects all elements of that type in a document. Consider the span element below

				<span>This is a span element.</span>

span elements (as above) within a document can all be selected and given CSS property/value pairs. An example below shows a CSS rule selecting span elements and the property color set to red in the declaration block

				span {color: red;}

The above rule matches all span elements in the document and will be coloured red.
