Node cannot be inserted at the specified point in the hierarchy
can someone point out the error in my ways with the script at http://www.alphaworks.co.uk/test/add2.html ?
It gives a "Node cannot be inserted at the specified point in the hierarchy" error relating to line 26.
I can't see what I'm doing wrong, it would seem a valid thing to do. I've searched on the error but can't see anything which applies to my problem.

Look carefully at your newTD function. What are you creating and returning from there? Oops!
Hope this helps,

It may be because the parentNode is not what think.
Add ... I'm pretty sure you're going to get TBODY.
// This is what the browser assumes as the table hierachy
// even if you don't include the thead, tbody, or tfoot tags
