I am creating a dropdown for a site, but cant seem to get it so only a few of the list items are effected by a certain effect. Here is a much shorter example of what my coding will look like.

 

 

<html>

<head>

<style type="text/css">

li:first-child

{

background:yellow;

}

</style>

</head>

<body>

 

<ul>

<li><a href="#">Coffee</a>

<ul>

<li><a href="#">fdas</a></li>

<li><a href="#">fdas</a></li>

</ul>

</li>

 

<li><a href="#">Tea</a></li>

<li><a href="#">Coca Cola</a></li>

</ul>

 

</body>

</html>

 

I am trying to make it so only Coffee, Tea, and Coca Cola are highlighted. while fdas isn't. Thank you for your time and consideration

Use classes. Using the first-child attribute is going to affect all first-child elements it can find. Either that or you should use it on the ul:first-child. That way, you only target the first li elements. However, this way, Coca Cola will not be highlighted since Coca Cola is not the first child of ul.
