Descendent Selector in CSS

A descendant selector in CSS is any selector with white space between two selectors without a combinator.

Descendant means anywhere nested within it in the DOM tree. Could be a direct child, could be five levels deep, it is still a descendant. This is different than a child combinator which requires the element to be the next nested level down.

The descendant selector is the most expensive selector in CSS. It is dreadfully expensive—especially if the selector is in the Tag or Universal Category.
