Descendant combinator broken when followed by wildcard or pseudo-class #6

Selectors like css("div :nth-child(2)") or css("div *") are currently broken.

This problem is due to white space greedy tokenization, specifically in the patterns {W}\:{W} and {W}\*{W}.

Because both of these symbols can start a compound selector which can be preceded by a descendant combinator (a space), they cannot be greedy about the white space that precedes them.


Change the patterns to \:{W} and \*{W}.
