I noticed recently that IE5/Win does seem to support CSS2 Child selectors,
but only if the elements are separated by white space. i.e. body>div won't
work but body > div will. I thought it was generally accepted (for
example http://www.webreview.com/style/css2/charts/selectors.shtml) that
IE5/Win and IE5.5/Win didn't support Child Selectors, but this example
suggests otherwise:


Anyone know what the deal is?
