I'm still having alittle trouble here.

Since you can't detach() a list, The only way I know if is to change
the list int to a jdom.Element. But when I do that, I get nothing returned.

Am I doing something wrong?

You're getting back a list of Elements/Attributes/Whatever that
are sill attached to the original document you've queried against.

You can certainly detach() them and reattach them however you like
to a new document.  But, you -will- get errors attemping to add them
to a different document before you detach them.
