Nice article. The lack of support for these brilliant selectors managed to bug me during about every project I have worked on.

Luckily with my current project I only have to care about Webkit, which by itself makes it a great project to work on :P, but with the next I may make good use of jQuery and be rid of one more source of annoyance. :) It still depends on the intended audience though, because using javascript can come with its own annoyances, as Prisca and Teddy mentioned.

@Mike Breen:
Good point. Although I think Rachel intentionally went for :nth-child() as jQuery filter, because it also accepts equations, like ‘3n’, instead of just ‘odd’ and ‘even’.
