The first two lines of w3.css

Apologies for asking what must be a naive question, but the effect this is having is actually quite important to me.

 

The second line of w3.css reads

 

html{box-sizing:border-box}*,*:before,*:after{box-sizing:inherit}

I get everything except the * after the first } "-box}* ". No-where can I work out what this is supposed to do. The first element styled is html, the second and third are before and after of everything *, but what is that first * doing please?
Thanks in advance.

The asterisk selects all elements, the comma is used to apply multiple selectors to the same set of rules. When properly indented the code should look like this:

html {
  box-sizing:border-box
}

*, *:before, *:after {
  box-sizing:inherit
}
