Hi Wendell,

Thanks for the reply! Your code worked very well, and solved the problem in my
various tests yesterday and today. Fortunately, this is a temporary solution
while we migrate the customer to an actual element container instead of a
mis-paired tag. Their business rules, which they follow, require them to pair
the tech:revst and tech:revend correctly, and they are always siblings. Our
parser explodes, otherwise.

I'm grateful for the assistance and things I've learned in this code!

Best,
Michael
