                    <br />
                    The elements that will be bookmarked are defined using CSS selectors. 
                    For example, the selector for all the H1 elements is "H1", the selector for all the elements with the CSS class name 'myclass' is "*.myclass" and 
                    the selector for the elements with the id 'myid' is "*#myid". Read more about CSS selectors <a href="http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css_selectors.asp" target="_blank">here</a>.
