Re: [xml] Get element tail

I am trying to follow lxml from Python that allows to get the text after the

of the current element). I am able to do this with xmlTextReader, by
obtaining a pointer from the current node (when the node type is ELEMENT) to
its next sibling.

How do you do that? What call do you use?

<h1>Text before <strong>bold 1 <underline>undelined text</underline> after
bold 1</strong>in between <strong>bold 2</strong>text after <strong>bold
<h1><strong>bold 1</strong> no text before <strong>bold 2</strong> text
after <strong>bold 3</strong>.</h1>

The first <h1> element is correctly parsed, but the second one is not, the
text node " no text before " is not detected as the tail of the element

There is no such thing as "tail of the element <strong>" from the POV
of xmlTextReader.
The text node is merely the next node the cursor would be pointing at
calling xmlTextReaderRead.
