[jdom-interest] Commenting whole Elements?

Hi,

I'm currently writing a tool to merge different fragments into a
web.xml. I'm looking for a way to surround an element with comments.
I've added a namespaced attribute to the element. Based on this I'm
trying to surround the Element with two Text elements:

Text intro = new Text("<!--");
Text outro = new Text("-->");

Unfortunately the pointy brackets are escaped. I haven't found a way to
disable the escaping:

new Text("&lt;--")
resolves to:

"&amp;lt;--"

What can I do to disable the escaping for those two Text elements? Or is
there an even better way to accomplish what I'm trying?

Thx,
Jan
