Watching this sample code, how to xpath pointing to the second element called "example_a"?:

<span class="example_a"/>
<span class="example_b"/>
<span class="example_a"/>

Hi Roberto,

If you'd gave all classes an unique name you could do the following:

<xpath expr="//span[@class='example_a']>
    <!-- Some code here -->
But, since this is not the case, you should just use an index. For example:

<xpath expr="//span[3]">
    <!-- Some code here -->
This will search the third element that is a span. This code literally says 'get me the third item that is a span'.

Thank you very much for your answer.
