selenium label location strategy chokes on labels with regexp characters

Reported by tomo | June 16th, 2009 @ 03:05 AM

With http://github.com/brynary/webrat/commit/9a42304513cfc2c19831cc1bee5..., the label location strategy fails when trying to locate a label which contains regexp characters (see the "should fill in text field by label with special characters" test in the fill_in_test.rb rails integration test).

One possible fix is to escape the locator in Javascript. I've done this at http://github.com/tomo/webrat/commit/b6b71993eb0b81cee05fb9ea29b5fc... (lh265 branch).

I also made it search for either a word boundary OR end of line so that labels that end in non-word characters will work.
