Quick Tip: CSS focus-within
The new :focus-within CSS pseudo-class allows you to define styles for an element that has focus anywhere within it. This can be especially helpful for drawing attention to focused elements and enhancing keyboard and visual accessibility. For example, one could define visual highlighting for a form when a user focuses a field within that form, or highlight a table row if a user navigates to a link or control within that row. This functionality was previously only possible using scripting, but is now increasingly supported using basic CSS.
