I've defined a node type in a custom module. I would like to generate the body content for this node but I'm not sure how to reach it? Would you do this in hook_insert() and hook_update()? Do these hooks fire before or after Drupal processes body content?
I understand how to add data to my own tables using the insert and update hooks. Would I do this the same way, by simply accessing the node_versions table with a db_query? Or is there a better Drupal-ish way?
