Space Between Selector

ol > * + * {
  margin-top: 1rem;

For direct descendants of ordered list (so, list items, <li>), for any element that is the adjacent sibling to any other element, apply margin top. This has the effect of giving every element except the first element a margin top. Semantically, this is a "space between" styling. This is essentially how tailwindcss implements their space between space-y-4 class, where ol is replace by the class, e.g.,

.space-y-4 > * + * {
  margin-top: 1rem;
