Adjacent sibling combinator A + B

The Adjacent sibling combinator represents a "B" element that is placed immediately after a "A" element.


A + B{ preperties }

Point, Note

  • The adjacent sibling combinator is made of the "plus sign" (+) character that separates two sequences of simple selectors.
  • The elements represented by the two sequences share the same parent in the document tree.
