I recently wrote a scrapper in rubyfulsoup and then rewrote it in  
hpricot. The hpricot version was MUCH faster, had less code and is  
easier to understand. I was a bit dubious of hpricot initially  
because of the 'strange syntax' but I am definitely sold now.

As for correctness, I can't comment.
