CSS | unset keyword

The CSS unset keyword is an inbuilt keyword in CSS. The CSS unset keyword is an inbuilt keyword in CSS which has been used to unset the cascading style to its parent element. It behaves like the inherit keyword in the first case, and like the initial keyword in the second case


property: unset;

Below example illustrates the unset keyword in CSS:





<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>CSS unset keyword</title>
            /* Color for all the child in parent element */
            div {
                color: green;
            /* Specific b and p element color */
            b, p {
                color: black;
            /* Performing revert for child */
            .rvt {
                color: unset;
        <!-- Parent elements -->
        <div class="container">
            <!-- Child elements -->
