Your impl iterates through the mixed content and removes all String and
CDATA entries. I'm not sure that's generally useful.
> public void replaceText( String newText );
This does the above but then adds at the end the new text. It's not
really a replacement then, because a<?pi?>b becomes <?pi?>newText.
For both of these, I think it better to use the List API to make
> public void replaceContent( Element oldElement, Element newElement );
This one there may be a use for. List doesn't have a replace() method.
Too bad. But you can simulate it easily enough, so I'm not sure it's
worth the API bloat.
