How to set the CSS of an img inside a li inside a ul inside a class?

In my html file, I have a navigation bar at the top of my page start starts off like this:

    <div class="“topNav">
        <li><img src="assets/map.png"> <a href="locations.html">Locations</a></li>
        <li><img src="assets/length.png"> <a href="length.html">Length</a></li>

And so on.

And in my CSS I tried

.topNav img {
  width: 10%;
  height: auto;

Except that img is too far deep (inside a li tag inside a ul tag) to be noticed or something. I want my topNav's images to be 10%, but not ALL images on my page. I have other images in the lower part of my page, and I have other style plans for them.

You need to use .topNav > ul>li>img OR .topNav ul li img Anyone will work.

The problem is with your HTML, you have an extra here

<div class="“topNav">

JS Fiddle

.topNav img {
  border:2px green solid;
<div class="topNav">
    <li><img src="//placehold.it/100x50?text=img-1"> <a href="locations.html">Locations</a></li>
    <li><img src="//placehold.it/100x50?text=img-2"> <a href="length.html">Length</a></li>
    <li><img src="//placehold.it/100x50?text=img-3"> <a href="locations.html">Locations</a></li>
    <li><img src="//placehold.it/100x50?text=img-4"> <a href="length.html">Length</a></li></ul>

In addition to @pritesh you code has a typo <div class="“topNav"> should be <div class="topNav">

Hope that is the reason it's not working.
