    Range.insertNode()

    The Range.insertNode() method inserts a node at the start of the Range.

    The new node is inserted at the start boundary point of the Range. If the new node is to be added to a text Node, that Node is split at the insertion point, and the insertion occurs between the two text nodes.

    If the new node is a document fragment, the children of the document fragment are inserted instead.

    Syntax

    range.insertNode(newNode);
    

    Parameters

    newNode
    The Node to insert at the start of the range.

    Example

    range = document.createRange();
    newNode = document.createElement("p");
    newNode.appendChild(document.createTextNode("New Node Inserted Here"));
    range.selectNode(document.getElementsByTagName("div").item(0));
    range.insertNode(newNode);
