css pseudo elements and adjacent combinators in extra css?

Does extra_css support pseudo elements, adjacent combinators, etc, or is it supposed to? I did some testing of things like this:
Code:
blockquote p {font-size: 85%; margin-top: 0em; margin-bottom: 0em}
p.initial {text-indent: 0;}
p.initial + p {clear: left;}
blockquote + blockquote {padding 5em}
'blockquote p' is applied - I don't know if this is technically considered an adjacent combinator or not - I think not.

'p.initial + p's clear left does not appear in the final css, and neither are the settings for 'blockquote + blockquote'. I've tried the nested blockquotes without the plus sign '+', but no luck there either.

Not sure if I'm dealing with a bug, a feature request, or if I'm just doing something wrong.

Have a look at the table in http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/selector.html to clear up your confusions.

Adjacent, descendant and child selectors are supported. The :first-letter pseudo selector is supported (it is basically converted into a <span> around the first letter.

No other pseudo selectors are supported.

That table is extremely helpful, thanks! Hadn't been able to find a tutorial/info that documented all the different types in one place. That rocks that this is all supported.

I see now I was mixing up adjacent and child selectors. If anyone reads this and needs an answer, I should have been using this for my blockquotes (which were nested):
Code:
blockquote > blockquote {padding-left: 20%}

The 'p.initial + p' didn't work because of my workflow - I forgot the <p> tag and initial class hadn't created yet because I'd been using markdown.
