If I load an Xml document, and pull out a particular element. If I then use
myElement = element.childNodes;

It will return to me all descendent nodes, not just child nodes. 
ie if I had
<Parent>
   <Title> SomeText </Title>
<Parent>

it will tell me I have two child nodes, when by w3c spec, the Text Node is 
actually the child of the Title Node ( or grandchild of Parent)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.load document
2.searchForelementByTagName
3.getChildNodes
4.Look at results

Actual Results:  
I get all the descendant nodes


Expected Results:  
I only want the child nodes
There is a #text node inside <parent> but before the <title> node... (look at
the DOM in DOM inspector, and make sure display of whitespace-only nodes is
enabled).
