parse siblings in DOM

Hi,
HELP!!!
I went through all the possible help code from the net which tells me how to access the value/child of a tag.
But what I need is to access the column values for each table. There are several tables in this xml file. So, I search for the table name through getElementsByTagName(), then I need to parse for the column-names. I'm not able to make it work with getNextSibling().
<table-name>hist_client</table-name>
<data-element>
<column-name>camp_id</column-name>
<column-name>ccr_id</column-name>
<column-name>record_id</column-name>
<column-name>record_num</column-name>
</data-element>
-thanx

The method getElementsByTagName() returns a node list.
You can iterate through it like -

It returns -
Inside Text: camp_id
Inside Text: ccr_id
Inside Text: record_id
Inside Text: record_num
Isn't it what you want? Why do you need to use the getNextSibling() method?
Cheers,
Dan

Hey Dan,
Thanx for the response.
What I'm trying to do is to read column-names from various tables. So, given a table-name, I just want it's column-names. That's why I'm searching for tagname 'table-name'
