Provide user with a tool to validate and/or generate selectors

I currently use http://sk.kapsi.fi/interactive-jquery-tester.html, but I would like a better tool that doesn't freak out if the source gets a little big.

I think this would make the framework more accessible to newbies.

        You can use FIrefox Firebug extension for this task.
        If you click right mouse button on page's element, you can select "inspect element" to start exploring DOM. You can find commands like "copy unique selector" for elements on your page.

        "Console" tab is also useful. In console you can write jquery-like queries interactively (if your page uses jquery): $("<your-selector-here>").
