Using jQuery, I want to put everything inside the body inside a container div.

This:
<body>
<div>
<h1>Hello</h1>
<p>World</p>
</div>
</body>

Open in new window


Should become this:

<body>
<div id="container">
<div>
<h1>Hello</h1>
<p>World</p>
</div>
</div>
</body>

Open in new window

Take a look at wrapInner.

$('body').wrapInner('<div id="container" />');

$d.appendTo("body");
