Reduced XHTML file reproducing the bug. (447 bytes, application/xhtml+xml)

Description Bernhard Bodenstorfer 2009-12-29 10:37:13 UTC
Created attachment 800 [details]
Reduced XHTML file reproducing the bug.

The stylesheet for contains the rejected rule
tr.compheader:last-child th {
	border: none;
Note that the :first-child pseudo class appears to work fine in the same stylesheet.

A more minimalistic show case is the attached XHTML file with embedded CSS, containing the rules:
p:first-child { color: red; }
p:last-child { color: blue; }
Comment 1 Yves Lafon 2011-10-04 20:05:48 UTC
:first-child is in CSS2, but not :last-child which is in CSS3 (and is supported)
