I can understand the desire for encapsulation, especially if you have a 
background in programming, but aside from creating another option for 
personal preference of CSS organization, I do not see the visible advantages 
to which you refer.  It looks like a curly brace was moved to associate the 
whole structure and a few words were left out of the second and third 
selectors (two of which words were unnecessary anyway except to alleviate 
possible specificity or class name conflicts).  Am I missing something? 
What are these advantages about which you wrote?


Kind regards,
