In this example, the selector matches any p element that is the first child of a div element, and indents the first paragraph inside a div element:

div > p:first-child
{
text-indent:25px
}

This selector will match the first paragraph inside the div in the following HTML:

<div>
<p>
First paragraph in div.
This paragraph will be indented.
</p>
<p>
Second paragraph in div.
This paragraph will not be indented.
</p>
</div>

but it will not match the paragraph in this HTML:

<div>
<h1>Header</h1>
<p>
The first paragraph inside the div.
This paragraph will not be indented.
</p>
</div>

It creates a layer - that overlaps other layers.-is used in DHTML.

There is no such thing as a 'layer' in html and divs do not necessarily overlap and, in most cases, don't overlap. A div is used to help structure a html document. It can be used to contain groups of related elements. That is its only purpose.
