[MacRuby-devel] hpricot and MacRuby

hpricot uses a C extension which is not compatible with MacRuby yet. I'm
planning on working with Aaron Patterson who wrote nokogiri during
RailsConf. The hope is to have nokogiri compatible with macruby 0.5 pretty
soon. In the mean time, HotCocoa has a XML parser which works pretty well,
check the hotcocoa mappings + do a search on this mailing list to find a
quick example wrote by Rich Kilmer.
