Ah, mistakenly posted different code than the results reflect.

The real example code used:

<!doctype html>
<html>
<!-- test1 -->
<head>
<title>documentElement.childNodes</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
onload = function() {
  var childNodesArray = [],
      cn;
  var childNodes = document.documentElement.childNodes;
  for(var i = 0; i < childNodes.length; i++) {
    cn = childNodes[i];
    childNodesArray[i] = [cn.nodeName, cn.nodeValue||""];
  }
  document.body.firstChild.data = childNodesArray.join("\n");
};
</script>
</head>
<!-- test 2 -->
<body style="white-space:pre">-</body>
<!-- test 3 -->
</html>

- and the Browser running on the BlackBerry, is BlackBerry9000/4.6.x
