:last-child Selector

Selects all elements that are the last child of their parent.


While .last() matches only a single element, :last-child can match more than one: one for each parent.

Find the last span in each matched div and add some css plus a hover state.

span.solast {
  text-decoration: line-through;
$("div span:last-child")
  .css({ color: "red", fontSize: "80%" })
    function () {
    function () {
