I'm having an issue where i want to access the previous list item
using javascript.

this.previousSibling works in Explorer, but in firefox it returns the
text element,

so if i use this.previousSibling.previousSibling it will work
correctly in firefox but not IE.

Quite a pain, how do others get around this issue? are we back to
browser sniffing :(
