Ah, sorry, the the definition is incorrect, the '*' item does not have 
multiple on it. But I think the same answer applies to wildcard 
children? The problem is that I don't know the name in advance, so I 
can't test for a specific child. The node.isNodeType suggestion is a 
good one though. I'll implement that.

Thanks (also Alexander),
