I think I was unclear.  My confusion is that a tree (rooted at a top
level headline) that I do not want exported is nevertheless exported if
a subtree within that tree has a "selected" tag.  I would have thought
the higher level heading would take precedence.

Yes, it is.  Again, I obviously didn't explain myself well.  I have
resorted to commenting out whole trees (rooted at headlines) to avoid
them being exported because a sub-tree has the selected tag.

In any case, I have found a workaround by inverting my tag usage.
