Hi there:

I just got the JDOM b10 downloaded and realized that the Element class 
implements the Parent Interface.  I have the following codes that will not 

rootElement.addContent(new Element("Course").addContent("Math"));

Where the rootElement is already defined as the root element and I am 
trying to add another element called Course and apply it's content.

The error message I received is something like....
cannot resolve symbol
symbol  : method addContent (org.jdom.Parent)
location: class org.jdom.Element

If I break this one statement into the following then everything works:

Element course = new Element("Course");

The same one-liner code use to work in Beta 9 version.  Can anyone offer me 
some hints or possible fixes using Beta 10.

Best, Joseph
