    Hi all
    This regexp seems to break ruby-mode parser or something like that (I'm
    not an advanced emacs user)
    This is the code:

    def image_data
    src = open("http://www.dilbert.com/").read
    soup = BeautifulSoup.new(src)
    url = soup.find('img', { :attrs => { 'alt' => /Today's Comic/ } })
    open("http://www.dilbert.com" + url['src'], "rb").read

    I'd appreciate if someone else tried this too. I'm using last version
    of ruby-mode.el and Gnu Emacs

    What's the actual problem? I don't see anything wrong - at least
    <Tab> still sets the indentation correctly.

    An obvious guess is that the "'" character is the problem. Try
    escaping it: " /Today\'s Comic/ ". Of course I can't test this fix as
    I don't see the problem!
