It only specifies interesting parts. The gist writeup explained that, for
example, it skipped over intermediate <ol><li> tags. And it naturally skips
blanks in contents, and unlisted attributes.
It is exactly the same as the XPath version I posted before. That used explicit
XPath queries to skip over uninteresting parts.

('be_html_including'.length - 'be_html_with'.length) / 17 =~ 30%.
So 30% fewer people would bother to type it!
