You can also add content to the end of tags::

    >>> d = pq('<p class="hello" id="hello">you know Python rocks</p>')
    >>> d('p').append(' check out <a href="http://reddit.com/r/python"><span>reddit</span></a>')
    >>> print d
    <p class="hello" id="hello">you know Python rocks check out <a href="http://reddit.com/r/python"><span>reddit</span></a></p>

Or to the beginning::

    >>> p = d('p')
    >>> p.prepend('check out <a href="http://reddit.com/r/python">reddit</a>')
    >>> p.html()
    u'check out <a href="http://reddit.com/r/python">reddit</a>you know ...'

Prepend or append an element into an other::

    >>> d = pq('<html><body><div id="test"><a href="http://python.org">python</a> !</div></body></html>')
    >>> p.prependTo(d('#test'))
    >>> d('#test').html()
    u'<p class="hello" ...'

Insert an element after another::

    >>> p.insertAfter(d('#test'))
    >>> d('#test').html()
    u'<a href="http://python.org">python</a> !'

Or before::

    >>> p.insertBefore(d('#test'))
    >>> d('body').html()
    u'<p class="hello" id="hello">...'

Doing something for each elements::

    >>> p.each(lambda e: e.addClass('hello2'))

Remove an element::

    >>> d = pq('<html><body><p id="id">Yeah!</p><p>python rocks !</p></div></html>')
    >>> d.remove('p#id')
    >>> d('p#id')

Remove what's inside the selection::

    >>> d('p').empty()

And you can get back the modified html::

    >>> print d

You can generate html stuff::

    >>> from pyquery import PyQuery as pq
    >>> print pq('<div>Yeah !</div>').addClass('myclass') + pq('<b>cool</b>')
    <div class="myclass">Yeah !</div><b>cool</b>
