Great question WTalbert.

XPath is defined as XML path.

It is a syntax or language for finding any element on the web page using XML path expression.

XPath is used to find the location of any element on a webpage using HTML DOM structure.

In eValid, the way on searches the DOM for a match is with the IndexFindElement or IndexFindElemntEX command, as described here:

These commands are described as the first two commands documented in these page: ... indElement ... dElementEx

The "Ex" version accepts regular expressions (strings with wild cards) and this is the command that eValid uses to produce the same effect as an XPath expression.
