Newbie help..

I was searching for an example that shows this:

1. Use a Document object.

2. Use XPath to select a node (element or attribute) from the Document object.

3. Change its value - basically update DOM.

any links?

XPath will let you locate DOM Nodes, but changing the content is up to the programmer.

What do you have so far?

Understood. Thanks. We located the node using XPath, and changed the required content programatically.
I agree. Here's the link:
