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
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).
