I have the following html on a webpage:

<img id="PageImage" alt="" border="0" usemap="#MapCircular" src="http://krogeratlanta.cntk.mywebgrocer.com/circular/265/pages/B_229323_63B0FE07319F.jpg" />

I am trying to find this img tag by the ID attribute and then grab the value of the SRC attribute. How do I write XPath to do that. This is what I have but it is not working:

//*[@id="pageimage"]/@src

XPath (like XML) is case sensitive. Try:
//*[@id="PageImage"]/@src
