Hi,

The serialization specification does not mention ">>" from CSS Selectors 
level 4: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/cssom/#serializing-selectors && 
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/selectors-4/#descendant-combinators

What we have done in WebKit is serialize ">>" like the other non-space 
combinators (e.g. "foo>>bar" serialize to "foo >> bar").

An other option is to canonicalize every descendant combinator to the 
space character.

It would be good to clarify this in order to avoid different 
serialization in different engines.
