  • Last Updated : 31 Dec, 2018

The element element selector in CSS is used to select elements inside the elements i.e it combines two selectors such that elements matched by the second selector are selected if they have an ancestor element matching the first selector.

Syntax:

    <body style="text-align: center;">
          
        <h1 style = "color: green;">
