The XNode that contains the next sibling node.

Dim xmlTree As XElement = _
            <Child1>1</Child1>Some Text
    <GrandChild>GrandChild Content</GrandChild>
            <!--a comment-->

Dim node As XNode = xmlTree.Element("Child2")
    Dim sb As StringBuilder = New StringBuilder()
    sb.Append(String.Format("NodeType: {0}", node.NodeType.ToString().PadRight(10)))
    Select Case node.NodeType
        Case XmlNodeType.Text
            sb.Append(DirectCast(node, XText).Value)
        Case XmlNodeType.Element
            sb.Append(DirectCast(node, XElement).Name)
        Case XmlNodeType.Comment
            sb.Append(DirectCast(node, XComment).Value)
    End Select

    node = node.NextNode
Loop While (Not (node Is Nothing))
