I am using the xerces DOMParser with Java.  I want to be able to take the top level node from one document
and append or insert it into a Node on a second, different Document.  When I try to simply call appendChild I get an exception that says "Wrong Document".  Is there a simply way of doing this?

Here is a code snippet I have removed all the unnecessary stuff such as exception handling

// missing navigate parent document to correct node set to parentNode

InputSource xmlSource = new InputSource(new StringReader(xmlStr));

DOMParser strParser = new DOMParser();          

Document newXMLDoc = strParser.parse(xmlSource);

Node nodeToBeInserted = newXMLDoc.getFirstChild();
                         
parentNode.appendChild( nodeToBeInserted);

  Are you sure you are using the latest Java XML APIs?

P.S. I think the moderators should add a "quote" function for replies. It would be quite handy.
