    Hi
    what is the meaning of this line in css

    .btn-group > .btn-mini

    # January 19, 2013 at 5:50 am

    That is a child selector, it will only select the next element it finds with a class of `.btn-mini`.

    No, it doesn’t.

    It means it will target any element with the .btn-mini class which is directly descendant of any element with the .btn-group class.

    This means the p tag will match but not the span since it’s not a direct child of .btn-group.

    div class=”btn-group”
    p class=”btn-mini”
    span class=”btn-mini”
    /span
    /p
    /div
