           Yes, it had me confused on that one. I was just trying to get a
previous element based on the index. I wasn't really sure how the casting
worked once I was using getContent(), but I did a work around with the
iterator. If someone can explain the casting please do.

Text is-not-an Element. It seems you are not expecting Text here.
