Hi all,
I'm new here, and I met some problem while I was using Watir gem to
automate my testcase.
I want to use Watir with xpath, coding like this:

require "watir"

@ie = Watir::IE.new
@ie.goto("www.g.cn")#google in china
@ie.text_field:)xpath,"//input[@name='q']").set 'test'

And there comes the following exceptions:
D:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/rexml/parsers/treeparser.rb:90:in `parse':
#<REXML::parseException: Missing end tag for 'u' (got "a")
(REXML::parseException)

Line:

Position:

Last 80 unconsumed characters:

<a class="gb3" style="COLOR: green! important" onclick="gbar.qs(this)"
href="ht>

Then I changed to ebay site, everything went well.
Does this problem come out because there are double byte characters in
g.cn? Maybe it's a naive question, I've worked on this for sometime but
still no progress,really hope someone will have solutions to this. Many
thanks!

We are now using a different xml parser for Watir (Nokigiri instead of
Rexml). You might want to build from trunk (master) or else wait for our
next release (which should be soon, but who knows?)

Thank you very much for your reply, maybe I would try Nokigiri(What does
this word stand for?), for further learning or more progress on my
automation...
nevertheless, how could I build from trunk as you just said?

Yours,
Jaqueline
