New DOM Analysis Command Supports Regular Epression DOM Searching

A new eValid command, IndexFindElementEx has been added to the set of DOM manipulation commands. This new command searches the current DOM for a regular-expression match on multiple properties. This turns out to be a kind of "ultimate DOM search" command in the sense that — as far as we can tell — there is practically nothing that can't be searched for on a page.

This command is part of the set of DOM Element Motion/Manipulation commands that are used to construct position/structure independent scripts that operate entirely at the DOM level. Such scripts are particularly attractive because of their ability to tolerate a very wide range of page variability without losing their meaning and effect.
