I have some code that result is not match expectation.




 $('span:eq(0)').is('span:first') // yes, it is true
 $('span:eq(2)').is('span:first') // expect false but true

 $('span:eq(2)').is('span:last') // yes, it is true
 $('span:eq(0)').is('span:last') // expect false but true

 $('span:eq(0)').is('span:first-child') // yes, it is true
 $('span:eq(2)').is('span:first-child') // yes, it is false

 $('span:eq(2)').is('span:last-child') // expect true but false
 $('span:eq(0)').is('span:last-child') // yes, it is false

BTW: I don't know what is different between :first and :first-child.

method takes its context from the collection of nodes it is given, similar to
. (The docs note this relationship.) If the filter expression yields at least one element,
returns true.

Your examples are all selecting a single span, so

will be true. You aren't showing the complete markup, so I don't know whether the
should return true or false.
