childElements(element) -> [HTMLElement...]

Collects all of the element's children and returns them as an array of extended elements.

The returned array reflects the children order in the document (e.g., an index of 0 refers to the topmost child of element).

Note that all of Prototype's DOM traversal methods ignore text nodes and return element nodes only.
