  @nest & ul {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    border: solid yellow 3px;

Hey Omar, have a look at this draft spec of the CSS Nesting Module: https://drafts.csswg.org/css-nesting-1/#at-nest
It’s similar to direct nesting (you may have seen selectors like
before), but more visually discerning and less limited.
Edit: beat me to it!
