Web-Page Inputs App: CSS selector not working for "pre" element

Communicator

I'm trying to set up a scraper using the Website Inputs app. For this particular web page, the data I need is contained in a "pre" HTML element. For some reason, when I try to use this as my CSS selector, I get a "no matches found" message. Is there a bug with this particular element? I'm happy to provide more details about the webpage I'm trying to scrape if that makes things easier.

Sorry for the super late reply. I think I may have discovered the reason for this issue. The app wasn't matching elements due to some case sensitive matching logic. This was fixed in 4.1.
