Interesting point, but merely a coincidence.

It doesn't change the fact that it is fairly well accepted in the CSS
community that:

 - a pseudo-class applies to a whole element, and indicates a state change
of that entire element. it always represents a node in the source tree.

 - a pseudo-element potentially applies to only part of an element or
elements. it typically does _not_ represent a node in the source tree.

BTW - I am getting auto-responder email from webmaster@richinstyle.com about
"contact re broken links etc." - did you intend to change the "reply-to"
address on the email you send out?  Or is the auto-responder getting
confused?
