I'm new to Less and I ran into a problem with pseudo-class selectors not working properly. I found the answer on dotless which has some Less documentation.

The documentation doesn't mention that essential trick of placing an ampersand in front of a pseudo-class selector to avoid the white space in the compiled file. For example:

    &:hover {color:blue;}

You might change it by adding the ampersand before the pseudo-class selector in two places: the "Nested Rules" section and the "Namespaces & Accessors" section.

I really love Less!
