Problem with Nokogiri::HTML::Element#line


#1

Hello,

I have a problem with Nokogiri::HTML::Element#line, it always returns
zero(0):

html = Nokogiri::HTML(<<eohtml)

test test Hello, world! eohtml

html.xpath("/html/head/title")[0].line # 0
html.xpath("/html/body")[0].line # 0

if I replace Nokogiri::HTML with Nokogiri::XML, all going to be
perfect.

Nokogiri::HTML::Element extends Nokogiri::XML::Node, so, #line should
return the line of the HTML node, isn’t it?

It should return the line. This is most likely a bug in libxml2.

I will look in to the problem.

Also, make sure to include the version of libxml2 you’re using. Just
print Nokogiri::LIBXML_VERSION.
