Assert{ 2.0 } makes test/unit competitive with any of those literate
systems.

[Plug!] Here’s what the latest (unreleased) version can do. This is an
XPath
test using Java and some Brand-X framework:

assertThat(
document,
hasTextAtXPath("//div[@id=‘info’]//p[id=‘name’]",
containingString(“Bob Jones”)));

Here’s the equivalent, with the XPath converted into a lite Ruby DSL:

assert_xhtml document

assert do
xpath :div, :info do
xpath :p, :name, ?. => ‘Bob Jones’
end
end

Among other benefits, it handles escapes and naughty characters in the
string
payloads correctly. And if the inner xpath fails, its diagnostic only
contains
the

- not the entire containing document!
