"Spec" has been deprecated and generates warnings, the new top-level module name for RSpec-2 is Rspec.
I have a number of specs that run against small chunks of HTML; since nothing clearly identifies them as HTML, they were parsed as XML, which resulted in all but the first parent tag being discarded. Where I really want XML, I can construct the Document myself and all will be well.
as was done before for Hpricot, though I'm considering dropping this
:matches? has grown big and ugly, but i want some assurance that all of these messages are legible and make sense before i start refactoring too heavily
