I am creating a Document via the following
I then want to make some changes to the Document via the setNodeValue method.
I then want to transform the xml back into String. How do I do this ? When I call toString an my Document all I get is [#document: null].
Could write a bit of code meself but I figure there must be a way to do this, n'est pas ?
