That sounds fair enough...if it's already been discussed before...

But beware...you haven't heard the last from me on this issue...once it gets
rolled into Java proper I will be raising a feature request!!!

I still don't believe, given JDOM's seemingly real goal, that having support
for Strings only is gonna be good enough for the future...I will acquiesce
for now...

This was discussed both in terms of lots of convienience methods like the
ones proposed here as well as representing the content with Text class,
something like your content class.  Like now, there were strong proponents
on both sides. While there are merits to both ideas, the smaller, simpler
existing version is what won the day. I was satisfied with the answer at the
time.  There are enough challenging tasks to accomplish with JDOM just to be
an effective object model for XML.  That is what I want JDOM to be, and to
be very good at.
