styles for the BIG element. We'll also change the line-height of the P element from 23pt to 27pt.This will have theresult shown in Figure 4-28:

BODY {font-size: 10pt;}P {font-size: 18pt; line-height: 27pt;}BIG {font-size: 250%; line-height: 1em;}<P>This paragraph's 'font-size' is 18pt, and the 'line-height' for thisparagraph is 27pt. A <BIG>larger element</BIG> within the paragraph doesnot cause the line's height to change, but setting its 'line-height' does,By being language independent, XML bypasses the requirement to have a standard binary encoding or storage format. Language independence also fosters immense interoperability amongst heterogeneous systems. It is also good for future compatilbilty. For example, if in the future a product needs to be changed in order to deal with a new computing paradigm or network protocol, by keeping XML flowing through the system, addition of a new layer to deal with this change is feasible. 

DOM and SAX are open, language-independent set of interfaces

By defining a set of programming language independent interfaces that allow the accessing and mutation of XML documents, the W3C made it easier for programmers to deal with XML. Not only does XML address the need for a standard information encoding and storage format, it also allows programmers a standard way to use that information. SAX is a very low level API, but it is more than what has been available before it. DOM is a higher level API that even provides a default object model for all XML documents (saving time in creating one from scratch if you are using data is document data).

SAX, DOM and XML are very developer friendly because developers are going to decide whether this technology will be adopted by the majority and become a successful effort towards the goal of interoperable, platform, and device independent computing.

XML is web enabled

Thus, use this declaration to make sure all elements have a color of black:

* {color: black;}

When used as part of a contextual selector, the universal selector can create some interesting effects. For example, assume that you want to make gray any UL element that is at least a grandchild of the BODY. In other words, any UL that is a child of BODY would not be gray, but any other UL -- whether

SPAN.change {position: absolute; top: static-position; left: -5em; width: 4em;font-weight: bold;}P {margin-left: 5em; position: relative;}<P> Lorem ipsum, dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit,sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut <SPAN CLASS="change">***</SPAN>laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.</P>

Figure 9-22. Another approach to defining a "change bar"

Remember when we mentioned static-position muchearlier in the chapter? Here's one example of how it works andhow it can be very useful.One of the first interesting things to notice about floated elements is that margins around floated elements do not collapse. If you float an image with 20-pixel margins, there will be at least 20 pixels of space around that image. If other elements adjacent to the image -- and that means adjacent horizontally and vertically -- also have margins, those margins will not collapse with the margins on the floated image, as we can see in Figure 7-65:

P IMG {float: right; margin: 20px;}
