cloning objects and CSS id of cloned element

abs
Hi all.
I use such code to clone blocks:

element = document.getElementById(IdOfElement)
element = element.cloneNode(true)
new_element = document.getElementById(IdOfElement).appendChild(e lement)

Anybody knows how to set id for the new element ? I mean the id which I coud
use in CSS stylesheet for setting css properties of new element.

Best regards,
ABS

This will work

element = document.getElementById(IdOfElement)
element = element.cloneNode(true)
element.id = 'newID'; //<- ID Assignment
new_element = document.getElementById(IdOfElement).appendChild(e lement)

Wouldn't

var element = document.getElementById(id),
newElement = element.cloneNode(true);

element.appendChild(newElement);

be a more sensible pattern? Anyway, as already indicated, placing

newElement.id = 'new-id';

before the appendChild call allows one to assign an id to the new element.
