Pseudo-classes are fictional element types that do not exist in HTML. For eg : by creating fictional types of the A element individual style can be applied to each class The three fictional element types are: A as unvisited link, A as active link and A as visited link. Pseudo-classes can be created by a colon followed by pseudo-class’s name as:


A:link {background: cyan; color: blue}
A:active {background: transparent; color:black}
A:visited {background: cyan; color: red}

Pseudo-elements are fictional elements that do not exist in HTML. They address the element’s sub-part. There are 2 types of pseudo-elements as “first-line pseudo-element’ and ’first-letter pseudo-element’. Pseudo-element is created by a colon followed by pseudo-element’s name,e.g:


P:first-line
H1:first-letter

and can be combined with normal classes;

e.g:


P.initial:first-line

The first line of this paragraph will be displayed in uppercase letters

The .Net framework recognizes the capabilities of the latest version of the above browsers poorly. This is because, by default, the BrowserCaps section of the machine.config file (usually found under a folder like ‘C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\CONFIG’) declares the capabilities of the Mozilla based browser poorly. So, you will have to replace the default entry in your install with this one: Mozilla BrowserCaps.
