Also, your statement isn’t very clear. CSS selectors are what we use to style our documents. The only way we can avoid using selectors is to avoid using CSS. I can only assume that you actually meant ‘descendant’ selectors? Descendant selectors are the least effective way to target an element (in terms of speed), so using the child combinator (>) is actually quicker.
