> Can this be done?

As a matter of principle anything can be done, it's just a question of
how convenient it is. Here though I don't think it is clear what "this"


That's confusing as the indentation indicates a different hierarchy than
the XML structure. elemE is indented as a child of elemC but it is in
fact a sibling.

Originally you said you wanted to search for strings in elemC then
changed that to children of elemB.

Can the children have mixed content or multiple descendent text nodes?

        <elemC>House <b>like</b> this</elemC>

does your search string have to cross eleemnt boundaries, ie would a
search for "house like this" find the first child above?

once you've found something do you want to reurn
the first child of elemB including all its descendents?
the string value of teh first child of elemB
the first elemC descendent of elemB whatever it snetsting

as you see the problem appears to be rather underspecified....
