Hello,

I'm eighteen years old, go to school yet and develop web applications in my spare time.

Currently I'm using the following CSS as a workaround:

     :first-child, noscript + :nth-child(2) {
        margin-top: 0;
     }

     :last-child, noscript + :nth-last-child(2) {
        margin-bottom: 0;
     }

But it would be much easier to use the ":visible:first" pseudo-selector for this, which is e.g. used in jQuery.

http://api.jquery.com/first-selector/

It's necessary if you have a box with some paragraphs and don't want to have unnecessary gaps at the the end and the beginning
of the box.

I hope you can include this feature into the offical CSS 3 specification. Please inform me about the progress of my request.

With best regards,
Daniel Bock
