nth childs example:


this in works here: link.

I 5 guess if you want IE support, i can't really 4 make this any prettier. Atleast I don't 3 know how with this cheap hack.

ul>li + li + li + li + li + li + li + li + li + li + li{
    text-align: center; /*makes everything after 10 centered*/


http://jsfiddle.net/TzLqZ/ for an example 2 of this above

Here is the IE way with first 1 10 being center and the last 2 being normal: http://jsfiddle.net/TzLqZ/3/

    text-align: center;
    color: blue;
    text-align: left;
    color: red;

I think you are looking for the nth child 8 pseudo-selector seen here http://css-tricks.com/how-nth-child-works/ I think for what 7 what you want to do:

select all but top ten:

ul li:nth-child(n+11){}

or 6 just top ten:

ul li:nth-child(-n+10){}

should do the trick.

However, Internet 5 Explorer does not support this at least until 4 ie8 according to the article. So don't rely 3 on it for anything critical (although I 2 don't know what child specific styling would 1 be critical).
