Hi.

Test question. Trying to see how to insert a test node into an
existing dom tree. For the test, it has a TR/TD with a
td[@class="foo"] that has an associated TR..

Trying to figure out how out how to insert a "<DIV></DIV>" around the
tr/td in question...

Curious as to how to accomplish this.

Thoughts/pointers.

thanks



--------------------------
sample code/html chunk follows:

import libxml2dom

  text is below

    tt = libxml2dom.parseString(text, html=1)
    t1path_=tt.xpath(t1path)

    aa=tt.createElement("<div>")
    print len(t1path_)
    for a in t1path_:

      tt.insertBefore(aa,None)
      print a.nodeName
      print a.toString()

    sys.exit()

<html>
<body>
<tr>
<td class="foo">
</td>
</tr>
<tr>

</td>
</tr>
<tr>
