I am having a problem figuring out how to do the following. I have
several xml documents, that are like as follows:

   <p><i><b>Excerpt from </b></i><b>Journal of Theodore Upson</b><br/>
   <b>Written in April 1861; originally published in 1943</b></p>

there are multiple div's in each document, but only the first one
contains an h1, and the I am trying to get the text of the p following
the h1, but before the br in the p, so
<p><i><b>Excerpt from </b></i><b>Journal of Theodore
Upson</b><br/><b>Written in April 1861; originally published in
would become
<p>Excerpt from Journal of Theodore Upson</p>

Problem is I have other p's later on in the document that I need to
preserve the b and i tags in, how can I go about solving this?
