When setting the documentElement property, the specified element node is inserted into the child list of the document after any document type node. To precisely place the node within the children of the document, call IXMLDOMNodeinsertBefore method.

The parentNode property is reset to the document node as a result of this operation.

The property is read/write, and applies to the following objects and interfaces:

DOMDocument, IXMLDOMElement, and IXMLDOMNode.
