	You can use TreeWalker in the Sun XML lib to access a node by its
name.  If you want to traverse the DOM tree, you have to handle the white
space.  Try to implement a recursive method and print out all the child
nodes with its value, take a look at IBM XML4J example.

	For your case,
	Node sibling = root.getFirstChild();
	sibling = sibling.getNextSibling();
