[jdom-interest] a question about node type

I would call

Iterator itr = root.getDescendants(new ContentFilter(
   ContentFilter.TEXT | ContentFilter.CDATA))

Then you'll get an iterator for all text and cdata nodes.  I'm not 100% 
sure but I think you can safely do replace calls on that iterator.

What's wrong w/ instanceof?
