What is a virtual element?
Not looking for a definition of a psuedo-element since I get. I can't find any reference as to what is meant by a 'virtual element'.
To add to Yann's answer, look at "first-line" it is like an implied element, because in the HTML markup there is no specific element of first-line listed, it is just something that is contained within the language. We don't actually have to create these elements within the HTML.
There is no such thing as virtual elements. Do you mean pseudo elements?
If you get what is a pseudo element, it's targeting a virtual element because it don't explicitely exist. Let's say div::after is not in the html but it specifies that div added with a ::after in the css. It will do somehing to that div under the ::after circumstance.
