:even and :odd selectors documentation does not specify which order is considered

The documentation for the :even and :odd selectors is very similar. :even's reads: Description: Selects even elements, zero-indexed. See also odd.

http://api.jquery.com/even-selector/ http://api.jquery.com/odd-selector/

There is no explanation of what is called an "even element" or an "odd element" or of which index is referred to. The examples do not make it very clear. One possibility which would agree with the examples is that the order considered is the order of elements matched by the modified selector.

I agree the current docs are sparse. Can you provide some specific words that would clarify the page in your mind?

If I'd know what the selectors do, I suppose I could. I see two likely possibilities which would work with the examples. The first is the one I described above. The second is that each element considers its own order, which is the order in the set of children of its parent (:odd-child, :even-child). But then not all elements have a parent.
