What elements do you typically attache the pseudo-element selectors
to?

Given this markup:

  <UL><LI></LI><LI></LI></UL>

and this style sheet:

  UL { display: table-row }
  LI { display: table-cell }

could you do:

  LI:table { color: red }

or

  UL:table { color: blue }

or both? Or, somthing else?
