Is there a particular reason why we aren't using things like the nav tag? And I thought html5 character encoding meta tags just needed to be <meta charset="utf-8"> ? I suppose it works fine either way, just curious about why we would use one over the other.
Also, I don't understand why we are using a class of last on the final list item. We could just target that with a :last-child or :last-of-type selector, couldn't we?
It depends which video's your watching I think a few of the older ones were created before HTML5 was implemented on a wider scale, plus not every site will have been changed over to HTML5 so it's good to know how things used to be. Your right though to be using the more semantic tags like Nav, section, article etc. The pseudo selectors you mentioned are covered in some of the CSS stuff maybe the deep dive so you will use those alot.
