Cascading and inheritance

Back to the index.

CSS3 cascading and inheritance specification.

This module contains a few specialized keywords to control CSS’s cascading and inheritance. Some of them, like @import and the inherit value, have been around for a long time. Others are new.

This is the mobile table. See also the desktop table.

Last major update on 24 September 2014.

No UC Mini tests; turns out I’d have to rewrite all the tests specifically for that beastly browser.

Wolfgang AT-AS45FW note: Wolfgang is a Dutch importer and re-brander of phones. In this particular case they seem to have bought Chinese (? probably) phones, re-branded them, then re-sold them to the Whoop company, which re-branded them and sold them to the Hema chain of supermarkets, which sells them to consumers as the Whoop Echo. Supply chain management FTW!
