Implement Descendant Combinator ">>"

Reported by, Jan 4 2015 Back to list

Issue description

UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_8_5) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/41.0.2266.0 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce the problem:
CSS Selectors Level 4 -

What is the expected behavior?

What went wrong?
While "foo >> bar" and "foo bar" are functionally the same, the ">>" selector is supposed to bridge the gap between ">" (child combinator) and ">>>" (shadow-piercing descendant combinator)

Did this work before? No

FYI - '>>>' (shadow-piercing descendant combinator) for static profile was
implemented under experimental web platform features flag in  issue 633007 .
