CSS sector targeting error for nested DIVs

I am familiar with the concept of inheritance but cannot determine how to fix my CSS. Because I'm using an iframe tag, it appears that unless I set the desired height attribute for head, body, div (the one marked with ID #content), and iframe to 98% (or any other desired number), the presentation collapses. Each tag seems to requires the height attribute. (This is my first use of the iframe tag.)

Target multiple elements in the same div


Let's say you have a div where there for example is some text in h2, h3 and p tags. Let's say you want to style the h2's and the h3's the same way. If the div class is "container" - the way I would do it now is:

.container h2, .container h3 {
font-size: 16px;

But then I thought, that the ".container" part is there two times.

Is there a smarter way to write it, so that you only write .container once to make the code as short as possible?

Thanks! Smile

CSS selector and list style confusion

Given the following HTML

<ul class="ul-items"> 
              <li><a href="#">Essen, Germany</a></li>
              <li><a href="#">Technical Solutions Engineer</a></li>

in the CSS stylesheet i have the folloing CSS :

ul .ul-items li , a {
    list-style-type: none;

What does the selector read as
a) select the li and a under the class .ul-items of element ul .
b) select the li under the class .ul-items of element ul , and than select the a tags in the entire document(i guess the 1st answer is correct but just conforming).

Selector confusion

OK CSS selectors .

Now if i have the below code in HTML

<div class="carousel-caption">
                <h1>Hello world</h1>

Now in CSS if i say

div p 

it will select p i assume.

and if i type

div > p

will it still select p ? or will i have to do

div > h1 > p

problem with combining styles

I am working with a Wordpress stylesheet. By the time is gets to me, ul and li have defined with an arrow bullet. For one list I don't want that graphic bullet, and I don't want the indent. this a sample is made to reduplicate the problem.
