The createContextualFragment method

The createContextualFragment() method enables you to parse a string of HTML into a DocumentFragment using the starting node of a Document Object Model (DOM) Range as the parsing context. Unlike inserting markup into innerHTML, the method can be used to create pre-parsed content to be added or inserted into a document when needed later.

The syntax of the createContextualFragment method is as follows:

oFragment = oRange.createContextualFragment(string); 

The parameters are described here:



A DocumentFragment object.


A DOM Range object.


A string containing the HTML to parse.
