[jdom-interest] newbie - help with document level comments (TYPO in orginal message) -

I came up with an answer. If there's another way please let me know.
I create the document with a dummy root element("rootw") and add the
comments to the document just as before.
I also create another element("root") that will become the actual root
element and add all elements and their children to it.
Just before I output the document:
List work = xmlDoc.getMixedContent();
This gets the comments at the top
Sorry, but I had a typo in the original message- "root.addContent(..."
should have been - "xmlDoc.addContent(.....
I'm creating an XML document using the Beta 6 release. I create the
document with - "Document xmlDoc = new Document(root);"
Interspersed with adding elements to the "root" and children to these
elements, I add comments at the document level with - "xmlDoc.addContent(new
Comment("doc level comment"));. When the process finishes all the document
level comments appear at the end of the file. I want the comments to
appear at the beginning of the document before the "root" element. Is this
possible? I haven't figured out any way to do it. Thanks in advance for
