Default Inner empty tag

Hi everyone. Here is my problem.

<bullet type="Item">
 Part 1
<image href="myImage.gif"/>
 part 2.

How can I distinguish between "Part 1" and "part 2."?
Both have the same xPath. When I am getting the text from the bullet tag, it gets the
full string: "Part 1 part 2."
How can I refer to them separately?

Thanks for your help/ideas.

You can refer to them as bullet/text()[1] and bullet/text()[2]
