To create a tree walker, define an accept() and then iterate through
nodes, would be more effort than rewriting the hand-rolled
Dom.getNextSibling function I posted every time. I guess I could
replace the source code of my dom.getNextSiblingElement, but a for()
loop is probably simpler.
REally, all I want is
nextSiblingElement/previousSiblingElement/childElements properties so
I don't have to have library code or write a for() loop every time i
want to just find the next sibling element.
