You can do something like this:

public String myGetString(Element el) throws Exception {
	try {
		java.io.StringWriter sw = new java.io.StringWriter();
		org.jdom.output.XMLOutputter out = new
org.jdom.output.XMLOutputter("\t", true);
		out.output(el, sw);
		return sw.toString();
	} catch (Exception e) {

This is my first posting to the list :)

How can I receive String representation of some Element including all its

Somthing like Element.getString() which will give
"<ELEMENT>text <CHILD> bla bla </CHILD></ELEMENT>" ?
