Do ID's also apply to any other element besides divs?

Yes, you can have ID's on nearly and tag. It's just a way of referencing that specific tag in your CSS. However, it is a HTML standard to only use ID's for you main wrappers/containers, then Class's for the rest of your tags.

I hope that makes sense. If you need more help, just contact me.

<div id = "something">
  <section id = " somethingdifferent">
    <h3 id = "eureka>  I understand now!!! </h3>

id can be used on pretty much any element.... each id on a page must have a different id.... so only one id of that name on the page....

<div class = "kissme">
 <h5>some writing</h5>

<div class = "kissme">
 <h5>different writing</h5>

<div class = "kissme">
 <h5>something else</h5>

class is used for multi items..... so you may want to style the above 3 divs with a background of red... one class selector does all of that class...

think about it as you are 1 and you have your own ID.... but if you are in a class you are one of many....
