That's not what I want though. I want to select all the list items in a particular blockquote other than the first item when I hover over the first item. My question is about why the selector I made up is not working.

    I do want to select the first child to detect if its hovered over or not.
    In theory, it should work like this

    .titlebox blockquote:first-child

    Selects the first blockquote in titlebox class

    ul li:first-child:hover

    Selects the first li in ul in the first blockquote and detects when it enters a hover state,

    .titlebox blockquote:first-child ul li:not(first-child)

    Selects everything in the ul in the first blockquote that is not the first child
