function that returns a well-formed element as a string - for example,
var fragment=element('div','This is a div')
// returns "<div>This is a div</div>"
You can use this recursively and always get well-formed text out -
var frag2=element('div', element('div','This is a nested div'))
// returns <div><div>This is a nested div</div></div>
And of course you can concatenate to get siblings or mixed content.
This approach knows nothing about DTDs but it is convenient, well-formed,
and a lot better than printf.

Did you really expect better? Really, Elliotte, you have a big heart. :-)
