nth-child CSS trick with IE Fix

The :nth-child() and :nth-of-type() pseudo-classes allows you to select elements with a formula.
The syntax is :nth-child(xn+y), where you replace x and y by numbers of your choice. For instance, :nth-child(3n+1) selects the 1st, 4th, 7th etc. child.

for example:

ul li:nth-child(3n+3) {
  color: #ccc;

select every third list item inside unordered lists. That is, the 3rd, 6th, 9th, 12th, etc. nth-child accepts two keywords: even and odd."Even" selects even numbered elements, like the 2nd, 4th, 6th, etc. "Odd" selects odd numbered elements, like 1st, 3rd, 5th, etc.
