    Target HTML Elements not Explicitly set in the DOM with CSS Pseudo Elements


    Pseudo elements allow us to target elements that are not explicitly set in the DOM. Using ::before ::after we can actually create and manipulate elements in the DOM that do not impact the content. While ::first-letter ::first-line ::selection ::placeholder allow us to target elements that do not have a specific DOM element.
