[Webtest] verifyXPath

Hi Guys,

I have a fragment of html:

<a title="test tooltip." href="1#">

which I am trying to verify the XPath of.

If I use:

//div[@id='formTable']/form/fieldset[1]/label/a[@href='1#']
then the XPath verifies ok.

However if I try:

//div[@id='formTable']/form/fieldset[1]/label/a[@title='test tooltip.']
then CANOO reports:
failed with message "xpath test: //div[@id='formTable']/form/fieldset[1]/label/a[@title='test'] matched no nodes"

I am using the title attribute to specify a mouse-over tooltip on a piece of text. Are there any restrictions in XPath 
here which I may not be aware of? Can anyone suggest a solution?

Thanks in advance,
Mark
