DomNode->replace_node --  Replaces node


object DomNode->replace_node ( object newnode)

This function replaces an existing node with the passed new node. Before the replacement newnode is copied if it has a parent to make sure a node which is already in the document will not be inserted a second time. This behaviour enforces doing all modifications on the node before the replacement or to refetch the inserted node afterwards with functions like DomNode_first_child(), DomNode_child_nodes() etc..
