Hey All,

Been awhile since I was last at the ranch. I just have a quick question regarding JDOM. Right now, I'm trying to parse the content.xml of an ODF file. I'm having a lot of problems getting children of Elements using the getChildren method.

Here's my code:

Here's a sample of the XML

I've tried passing a Namespace as a parameter and I've also tried using the string "office:font-face-decls", but so far, no dice. I've been searching the web, but nothing seems to be doing the trick.

I'll keep looking but any assistance will be appreciated.
