? You might be able to add with the iterator() but the changes might not be
reflected in the document.
? You might get a IllegalAddException if you go around this because the
parent already exists.
If this is what you want: <events>
					<event />
					<event />
					<new element fillevent here?>
Try eventslist.add(fillevent). This should add the new element <events> at
the end of that list (eventslist). If not, you have to make a new parent and
add the content to a new parent element.
