Re: [CSS3] selectors: parent combinator?

CSS3 Selectors does not have a parent combinator, although many people 
seem to have suggested such a thing.

Ian Hickson's proposal is probably the closest to what you want:

	p:has(dfn) { ... }

Or I suppose you could be even more precise:

	p:has(dfn:contains("HTML")) { ... }

No, not with CSS3. Even if there was, you would need a user agent that
supported CSS3 Selectors, such as <plug> YesLogic Prince, a batch
formatter for XML+CSS that supports most of the CSS3 Selectors </plug> :)
