Re: [css-d] Pseudo class

It may be incorrect, but I can think of times when I would want to work 
with a selector like that. For example:

     em { font-style: italic; }
     p:first-line { font-weight: italic; }
     p:first-line em { font-style: normal; }

Where the third selector is interpreted to mean em elements that appear 
in the first line of a paragraph should be styled as normal, so that 
they'd stand out from the already italicized text around them. This 
could get a little tricky to implement, but it would be cool, nonetheless.
