had no idea myself before I started working on the CSS-Editor ;-)


Not all of those selectors work in JavaFX but i gives you an expression 
how complex those can get.

So if you create an API you better not allow CSS-Selectors but:
* findById(String)
* findByClassNames(String ...)

BTW if you need an intermediate complex solution there is JXPath 
allowing you to traverse Java-Object graphs using XPath ;-)
