I expect $('form>div span') would select all spans in such document:


<form name="form1" method="post" action="someform.aspx" id="form1"> <div>


<span> Language of Mailing</span>

</div> <div>

<span style="border:1px solid red">Client Mailing Address</span> 1251 WestWind Av.

</div> <div>Agreement</div> <div>sth1.</div> <div>sth2.</div>

<span>Laser Beam</span> <div>

<input type="submit" name="Button1" value="Submit" id="Button1" /> <input type="submit" name="Button2" value="Clear" id="Button2" />


</div> </form>


but it can only select this element <span>Laser Beam</span>

is it a problem?
