Problem with javascript DOM programming

Hi there

I want to insert a row in a table using Javascript DOM programming. But I get the error mentioned below when I run the below script in Mozilla. Though I am able to appenChild successfully, I am not able to insert the row. If you have any such experience, please help.

<script language="javascript1.2">
function insert()
newText=document.createTextNode("inserted node");
<table border="1" id="mytable">
<td>Td one row one</td>
<td>td two row one</td>
<td>Td one row two</td>
<td>td two row two</td>

<input type=button value="Insert Before" onclick = 'insert()'>

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Node was not found" code: "8" nsresult: "0x80530008 (NS_ERROR_DOM_NOT_FOUND_ERR)" location: "file:///root/LearnDOM/insert2.htm Line: 13"]

In my case line no . 13 is mytable.insertBefore(newTR,oldTR);

Please help me and show me the right direction.
