The #text tags are the closing tags of your nodes.
If you want to work with XML, I'd recommend learning to use SAX and JDOM.

You are seeing a lot of text nodes that contain the crlf and spaces of your formatted XML. Rather than index through the child nodes, consider use of the getElementsByTagName method to go directly to the Elements you want.

I am going to move this thread to the XML forum. This forum is for Servlet questions.
