Does ${a} work ? This should be the same as ${a_1}.

The most likely cause is that Tidy is changing the XML structure so
the query no longer matches.

Not sure why that would be; to investigate further you will need to
provide exact details of the source data and a Test Plan containing
the XPath Extractor and the Sampler that uses the data.

Do not post these to the list; upload somewhere public and post the URL.
