Say I have a string that represents an XML element that I want to
embed into a REXML::Element, how would I do this?

For example, if I have:

xhtml_elt = REXML::Element.new( 'xhtml' )
xhtml_string = "<p>foo <strong>bar</strong></p>"

Is there a way I could get to:

puts xhtml_elt.to_s
=> <xhtml><p>foo <strong>bar</strong></p></xhtml>
