This looks excellent.  Thank you very much!  I doubt I ever would have 
figured that out on my own!  I'll give it a try later today.

To the JDOM developers: This seems like it would be a really useful 
feature for JDOM to support, and it looks like something you could do 
fairly generically, without compromising JDOM's design.  If you have a 
feature request tracking system, well, consider this a request.
