FirePath ( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/firepath/ ) seems
to be even better than what I had suggested with FireFinder.  It integrates
with Firebug and actually works.

It also does a much better inspection of the Xpath than FireBug out of the
box, here is an example from a JIRA page I was had open:

FirePath:  .//*[@id='issuedetails']/li[5]/div/strong


FireBug:   /html/body/div[3]/div/div/div/div/div[2]/ul/li[5]/div/strong

It is generating a less fragile Xpath selection.
