<body>Don't forget me this weekend!</body>

1. The text between start tag and end tag of an element is called an
element content.
Example: In the <to> element "jani" is the element content

2. The <note> element has only other child elements, and not
text it is said to have element content.
Since <to>, <from>, <heading>, <body> have only text as child, they are
said to have simple content.

Question: Some one please tell me which one is a element content.

The javadocs for org.w3c.dom.Node have a great table that summarizes the contents of the various kinds of Node (including Element).

subject: element content
