[jdom-interest] Recursively Modifying the JDOM before output.

After thinking about it I'm not sure isetText() should even exist or if you want to continue using it then it should be renamed. Otherwise you will be getting this same question regularly.  I remember posting it myself.  At that time I remember being told setText() was a convenience method.  Since then I have never used it...so how convenient is it? 

Anyway, what about replaceAll(String) for an alternate method name?  It could be overloaded with replaceAll(Element) as well.

That's one workaround.  I'd like to have something better.

We could also just put the text before or after the other content?  That
might be less ugly.  Perhaps we could be fancy (too fancy?) and set it
at the first non-whitespace text node.  As a newbie, what would you
