- In this chapter, we're gonna talk about combinators.…As the name suggests, combinators are designed…to combine CSS selectors together…and match content based on their relationship to each other,…and allow us to more precisely target content.…I wanna start by exploring the child combinator…which allows you to target the direct children…of parent elements.…Now, that may seem a little confusing at first.…So first, let's take a look at the syntax.…which you can see here on the child-combinator.htm page…found in the 05_01 directory.…
The first example that I have here…is article and then the greater than symbol…and then p.…Now, this may seem very similar to descendant selectors…and indeed, that's probably who they most closely represent.…Now, if this was a descendant selector…and the greater than symbol wasn't there,…and it was just article space p,…you would be saying, "I wanna target…"every single paragraph that you're gonna find…"in an article, no matter how far deeply nested."…And that's really the biggest difference…
