Replacing the content of a node with a text string

I need to replace a couple of nodes that contain childnodes etc with just a text node. Does anybody know a quick way of doing this?
Is the best way to create a node with the same name etc but just with the text node that I want to insert and the use the replaceChild method of the Node interface? or is there a simpler way?

In the org.w3c.dom.Node class there is the
replaceNode(Node newChild, Node oldChild)
method. See the JavaDocs for details.

I'm in the habit of checking out the
Java Developer's Almanac
when I need to do something new with the DOM API. You might want to check it out, too (or bookmark it for later).
