Is there a simple way of getting all the child nodes with a given name? Or do I have to loop through a NodeList and check each in turn?

Yes, I believe there is. Of course when you realize that only the Element nodes have names, that makes it much easier to find the method you're looking for. I don't have the API documentation handy but you should be able to find the method quite easily there.

Thanks, I hadn't realised that Element extended Node - a quick cast and I'm sorted.

Thanks again.
