Hi experts,

I have this fiddle

https://jsfiddle.net/k0nfs2e9/

it looks like this:
fiddle
In this fiddle i'm doing this:

// look for all elements using this class DivStyle1 and append the image to the one that contains this string Div 3
$('.DivStyle1:contains("Div 3")').append(img);  

That works fine.

How do i revise it, so it instead of looking for this string "Div 3"  I look for the <p> tag instead.

I tried this but it didn't see to work:

// look for all elements using this class DivStyle1 and append the image to the one that contains this tag <p>
$('.DivStyle1:contains("<p>")').append(img);  

Any ideas of what I'm doing wrong?

This is one way
$('.DivStyle1>p').append(img); 

Open in new window


 $('.DivStyle1>p:contains("Div 3")').append(img);   

Open in new window
