            Descendant selectors apply styles based on ancestral relationships.
            <span class='code'>&lt;span&gt;</span> element named <em>code</em>,
            which is a descendant of <span class='code'>&lt;p&gt;</span> elements.
            To do this, the selector <span class='code'>p span.code</span> is used.
        <p class='note'>
            The note text is given different styles.  To do this another descendant
            selector is used.  This time the selector is <span class='code'>p.note
