maybe, but not with that name.
Results 1 - 10 of about 4,480,000 for Descendent [definition]. (0.22 seconds)

the wikipedia links are confusing enough
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Descendant links to:
which has an also link to http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/descendant
which has a 'US' audio file
So the web says that '-dant' is favored 2:1 over '-dent', which is a
fairly bad margin considering the spelling errors we've seen in
I'd sooner see Node.getElementById and risk the confusion of it
returning fewer nodes than Document.getElementById.
