a tag object.


A child element to append to a parent tag.


A character string containing a CSS selector for targeting particular (inner) tags of interest. At the moment, only a combination of type (e.g, div), class (e.g., .my-class), id (e.g., #myID), and universal (*) selectors within a given simple selector is supported. Note, if .cssSelector is used, the returned tags will have their $children fields flattened to a single list() via tagQuery().


a collection of child elements.


Deprecated. Use !!! instead to splice into ....


an integer value (i.e., subscript) referring to the child position to append after.
