    Was wondering why you never see font-family declaration under the * selector. Is there a reason to not do this?

    thanks

    It’s just not necessary.

    By using [*] it’s applying the font property to every element (images etc) even though it might not need it.

    Attaching it to the [body] element sets it for all **text** on the page body.

    I’m not entirely sure but also I think using [*] is more specific than sub-elements of the body and so might override other settings.

    thanks Paulie
