Subject Re: Difference between Document.getNodeValue() and Document.getTextContent()?
Date Sat, 16 Apr 2011 19:47:53 GMT
Hi Kesh and Michael,

    Thanks for your reply. That worked for me. And also got to know that
another node is created for the "new line" which is there in the XML file as
follows:

        <note>
<to>Apache</to>
              ............................
   The "note" is the document element and its' node value is null. The next
node is a text node where its' node value is "\n". Next node is "to" and
its' node value is also null and so on.

Thanks.
