Are you wanting to collect all of the child elements of $(element) ?

try using $(element).childElements()

but actually looking at the whole code it looks like you are defining
getElementsByClassName - there is already functionality in prototype to do
this

$$(".classname") will return a list of elements with that classname in the
entire DOM

if you need to select all elements that are children of a certain node
$("element").select(".classname") will do that
