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!
