- a < img
Which says “Find me all a elements that have an img element inside of them.”
To those of you who are familiar with jQuery we’ve had a similar selector, :has(), for quite some time:
If you’re totally bent on Shaun’s syntax (don’t care for :has, I would assume) here’s the two-line plugin that’ll give it to you in jQuery:
- jQuery.expr["<"] = jQuery.expr[":"].has;
Then the following will work as you would expect it to:
- $("a < img")
It’s really nice having an extensible selector engine at your disposal.
