The caller will guarantee that the current element does have nested XML elements, and the call will position the reader at the open tag of the first child XML element. This method will read as many child XML elements as it can. It returns under three circumstances: 1) When an unknown child XML element is encountered. In this case, this method will position the reader at the open tag of the unknown element. This implies the if the first child XML element is unknown, this method should return immediately and do nothing. 2) When all child XML elemnets are read. In this case, the reader will be positioned at the end tag of the parent element. 3) EOF.
