h3. Inheritance

The structure of HTML is hierarchical and can be compared to a tree structure, where one element, or HTML tag (eg. <body>, <p>) has the following propertiescharacteristics:
# It can contain several "child" elements
# It belongs to only one "parent" element
# It can have several "ancestor" elements (parents of its parent element)
# It can have several "descendent" elements (children of its child elements)

CSS can support such a structure by allowing child elements to inherit certain properties of their parents when specified.
