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.
