Um, having had a chance to think this over a bit, I guess I should have been
more specific with my question, sorry.

It would be very useful for me to create a document as a DOM tree, based on
data that I can easily access with SQL statements. I'm wondering whether
there are well-known design tips for converting table oriented data
structures into tree structures, that would come in handy for this sort of
task, in terms of efficiency and reusability?
