The case of lost children – CSS 3 and Why you should care about it.Oct 08
A while back I had this post about support for CSS3 in IE7. With a growing share of 23% and a mission to make this version automatically available to all users of Windows XP, IE7 still seems to have got it wrong for the developer.
The CSS3 frustration continues, for e.g: the “last-child” selector, could have been a boon to site designers. The trailing “class=last” that’s added to every last item of a list, the last cell of a row could have been on the way out for once and all.
The “last-child” selector is a easy way of targeting the last element of any dom node collection. This is great for any last item of a list where you dont want that seperator to appear. MS doesn’t seem to realize that just doing half baked work with “first-child” doesn’t cut it.
