> Hi,
> It would be really nice if a method is provided to identify any element using inner_text. Right now one has to know the type of element one is looking for to begin with. e.g. div or td or tr. But it is not possible to traverse back from the inner_text and get the element.
> e.g. What I am asking for is :
> <element1> text1 </element1> 
> to be able to get <element1> by matching text1 even though I do not know what is the type of <element1> is.
> Best regards,
> Nick
