This code:


selects all UL elements that have more than 3 children.

Check out this demo:

As you can see, the above code works - all UL's with more than 3 children have a yellow background-color.

However, the demo uses jQuery 1.2.6. If you switch to any of the more recent versions of jQuery, the code stops working.

Also, note that this selector:


has the same functionality as the above selector. And this selector also only works in 1.2.6 but not any more recent version of jQuery.


Just to make sure that we agree on the semantics of the selector:


Select all UL elements which contain at least one LI element which is the 4-th child (of its parent).

Therefore, in the demo that I supplied above, the last two UL elements should be selected by this selector, but they're not.
