Hi Marcus,

I've tried to reply twice to Christian's own reply already to make a 
similar point, but they have both mysteriously disappeared...

I used the childNode.nodeValue method purely on the recommendation of 
PPK's Quirksmode page about including XML via Javascript.  It 
specifically states that "text inside a tag is the nodeValue of the 
first childNode of that tag".
