I'm not sure.  There's been a lot of discussion of how to implement
NodeIterators on www-dom; see the archives at
I believe different designs exist, some of which require iterators to be
notified on insert and delete operations, and others which maintain
"markers" in the tree that move around as the tree is edited.  I have not
followed this closely enough to give you a definitive answer, but look at
the www-dom archives, and especially Don Park's SAXDOM implementation,
because Don participated in the discussions of this a couple of weeks ago
and I believe his latest release reflects what he learned.

Good luck,
