Replaces the object with another element.
IHTMLDOMNode retVal = object.replaceNode(replacement);
- replacement [in]
An IDispatch that specifies the new element to replace the object.
There are no standards that apply here.
When a node is replaced, all values that are associated with the replaced object are removed. For example, if a b object is replaced with an i object, any attributes and text between the opening and closing tags are also replaced. To preserve these values, copy them to the new element before the original object is replaced.
This method is accessible at run time. If elements are removed at run time before the closing tag is parsed, areas of the document might not render.
