How do we style HTML elements using the division tag
?


The <div> tag is used as the container for the HTML elements. With the help of this tag, we can easily define a section of a HTML Document. It is also used to group large sections of HTML elements together and easily format them. The <div> tag is used with block-level elements.

The <div> tag accepts all the CSS properties and styles the elements in it using attributes like class and id.

Syntax

Following is the syntax for the <div> tag.

<div class='division'>Content…</div>

Example 1

Given below is an example to add style to the division tag in HTML.

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge"> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"> <style> .parent { border: 1rem solid green; margin: 1rem; padding: 1rem 1rem; text-align: center; box-shadow: 2px 2px 20px 23px aquamarine; } .division { display: inline-block; border: 1px solid aquamarine; padding: 1rem 1rem; background-color: #2ecc71; color: white; } </style> </head> <body> <div class='parent'> <div class='division'>div tag 1</div> <div class='division'>div tag 2</div> <div class='division'>div tag 3</div> </div> </body> </html>
