I see people are saying use Hpricot or Nokogiri and you have gone on to choose Hpricot. Not a good choice. Hpricot was the work of the hacker _why who has now disappeared. But even before he disappeared nokogiri overtook hpricot in performance. He even tweeted "caller asks, “should i use hpricot or nokogiri?” if you're NOT me: use nokogiri. and if you're me: well cut it out, stop being me".

So please, use nokogiri it's a great library and the only thing I really miss from ruby-land in python.
