Adds a node as child of this element.
The node will be added to the list of childs of this element, and will have this element set as its parent when node provides
IElement. If node is a
str and the current last child is character data (
str), the text from node is appended to the existing last child.

Adds character data to this element.
If the current last child of this element is a string, the text will be appended to that string. Otherwise, the text will be added as a new child.
