Insertion

As of Prototype 1.6, the complete Insertion class has been deprecated in favor of Element#insert.

Insertion provides a cross-browser solution to the dynamic insertion of HTML snippets (or plain text, obviously). Comes in four flavors: After, Before, Bottom and Top, which behave just as expected.

Note that if the inserted HTML contains any <script> tag, these will be automatically evaluated after the insertion (Insertion internally calls String#evalScripts).
