Hi Caleandro,

this is a current limitation. Perhaps I am wrong but I think that Jaxen (the
XPath) engine should handle it. As long as it is not the case I agree that
WebTest should make it automatically. Perhaps can you open an issue for it
to avoid that it gets lost.

As workaround you can look at earlier posts:
