But will a simple classname do? It doesn't seem to be working here, and
that's a problem.
Even when it might, it's often somewhat easier to work with the real
names on the elements rather than hiding them in class attributes. My
own HTML pages have quite a few non-standard, invalid elements that I
happily process with XML tools. I could probably change them to <div
class="name"> and <span class="name"> instead, but my code would become
more complex to handle that; and I don't see what anyone would gain by
me doing this.
