    Range.createContextualFragment()

    This is an experimental technology
    Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the spec changes.

    The Range.createContextualFragment() method returns a DocumentFragment by invoking the HTML fragment parsing algorithm or the XML fragment parsing algorithm with the start of the range (the parent of the selected node) as the context node. The HTML fragment parsing algorithm is used if the range belongs to a Document whose HTMLness bit is set. In the HTML case, if the context node would be html, for historical reasons the fragment parsing algorithm is invoked with body as the context instead.

    Syntax

    documentFragment = range.createContextualFragment( tagString )
    

    Parameters

    tagString
    Text that contains text and tags to be converted to a document fragment.

    Example

    var tagString = "<div>I am a div node</div>";
    var range = document.createRange();
    // make the parent of the first div in the document becomes the context node
    range.selectNode(document.getElementsByTagName("div").item(0));
    var documentFragment = range.createContextualFragment(tagString);
    document.body.appendChild(documentFragment);
