Which would be the most standards compliant long-term route? I hear people say it is preference, while other people say it can cause issues if you use a certain one.
Which of the below should I consider doing for all my CSS?
Thank you for any information you can provide regarding this!
hyphens are already in use for css properties: font-family, margin-left etcetera.
underscores can get in trouble with scripting languages like js. and css properties in js are based on camel Case: background-color(css) = backgroundColor(js).
you could just not use any of the two and use camelCase. or PascalCase.
Consider the one you’re most comfortable with. It doesn’t make much of a difference.
I prefer using a hyphen.
It also depends upon the markup language you use. Albeit I suspect they meant the id token (value) must begin with a letter ([A-Za-z]). So if you had id=“_a” or id=“1” it would be erroneous HTML and hence that is reflected in the CSS choices.
It doesn’t matter whether you use dashes or underscores, both are equally valid.
I would always try to avoid using camelCase or any technique that relies on capital letters, because case sensitivity is so easy to get wrong!
