This isn't very well signposted, I missed it on
skim-reading the module twice, and probably wouldn't
have re-suggested :contains() if I'd noticed it.

More importantly, I would like to know how it is
proposed to select an element that does _not_ contain
an element, e.g., P that does not contain DEL?
