Confirmed using Ant 1.8.2. And it skips comment and processing
instruction nodes.

<project>
<echoxml>
<root>
<child>text inside the child node</child>
text outside the child node
<!-- jaja -->
<?bla txt="Blubbel"?>
</root>
</echoxml>
</project>

Use a proper technology, like XSLT, the bloody best tool for XML
manipulation. (Unless you're dealing with absurdly large XML files,
of course. But even then, there are XSLT solutions.)
