How to Use the HtmlUnit plug-in

Basically, all you need to do is use the <htmlunit-session/> tag in your testcase. All HtmlUnit function tags must exist inside a <htmlunit-session/> tag. There are several tests in the source distriubtion of the htmlunit-plugin-src file. These files have several XPath examples for those not comfortable with XPath. There is also a sample script that uses several of the tags. The tag docs in the GUI also come with several examples.
