A simpler answer might be, Smalltalker's just generally don't like 
abbreviations in code, they like words that can be read aloud and spoken 
about without sounding absurd.  When you talk about html, you talk about 
anchors, paragraphs, headings, orderedLists, unorderedLists, etc. 
That's why they're better selectors.
