Adjacent, /ə'dʒeɪsənt/, adj. “having a common boundary or edge; abutting; touching”. Consider, for example, two span elements with (non-whitespace) text between them. They do not have a common boundary or edge, are not abutting, and are not touching. Guess who does think they're adjacent? That's right, the CSS “adjacent sibling” selector. 🤦
