Owen, this was very helpful for some related questions, but I'm still not sure I understand for to define an element for a specific Koha page.  For example, on the query wiki are these 3 examples:

$("#memberentry_contact label[for='phone']").html("Primary Phone :");

  $("#memberentry_messaging_prefs tr:contains('Upcoming Events')").empty();
  $("#patron-messaging-prefs tr:contains('Upcoming Events')").empty();

These seem to be "Koha" elements rather than standard DOM elements.  How would I know that, or am I missing something?

description in the OPAC.

I wrote some about that for KohaCon 2009. Jump to the "Fine control

See if that helps,
