Couldn't access xhtml table using JDOM XPath

Hi All,

I have successfully converted a file from HTML to XHTML format (xhtmlDocument) using the Tidy utility. Nevertheless, I am unable to access any nodes below the second table, using either getChildren() method or JDOM XPath navigation .

The content of xhtmlDocument file is as follows:



Below are the relevant codes and their outputs:

( i ) Using getChild()/getChildren() to access the content of the second table returned nothing either:

" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml]/>][/CODE]
( ii ) Using JDOM XPath to navigate to the second table:

" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml]/>]][/CODE]
However, I would like to retrieve all the nodes below the second table based on the value of its attributes from the example provided. e.g. id="main-content".

I have posted the same question on http://forums.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=5315879&tstart=0

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot,

Jack
