I think that Michael Kay's SAXON tools  contain a SAX driver for
iterating through a DOM tree, and I know that James Clark has a SAX
application XMLTest  that produces a normalised form of XML called
"Canonical XML" -- you could use the two of those together to convert
any part of a DOM tree to text.
That said, it would probably be easier and more efficient for you to
create a generic DOMWriter -- it's really a one-hour exercise if you
understand XML, the DOM, and Java well enough.
All the best,
