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">]/>][/CODE]
( ii ) Using JDOM XPath to navigate to the second table:

" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">]/>]][/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

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot,

I agree. Here's the link:
