Hpricot Namespaces


I’ve been using hpricot to parse html/xml. I recently ran into a
situation where an xml tag was within a namespace - hpricot returns nil
when I try to search for this particular tag using XPath. It works
using REXML::XPath. I googled, but apart from an open ticket there was
nothing else. Does anyone know if XML namespaces are supported in
hpricot, and how they are used?
