class HTML Attribute

The "class" attribute in HTML is used to define a class for an element, which can then be used to apply styles to the element using CSS. The class attribute allows you to group elements together that share similar characteristics, and then apply styles to all the elements in the group at once.

The class attribute is added to the opening tag of an element and its value is a string that defines the class name. For example, in the following code snippet, the class "highlight" is added to a paragraph element:


<p class="highlight"&rt;This is a highlighted paragraph</p>

You can also add multiple classes to the same element, separated by spaces.


<p class="highlight important"&rt;This is a highlighted and important paragraph</p>

Then, you can use CSS to target elements with a specific class and apply styles to them. For example, the following CSS will make all text with the class "highlight" bold and yellow:


.highlight {
    font-weight: bold;
    color: yellow;
}
