A chap that I know, asked me a question - it is shown below.
Hi Pete, Hope you're well. I was hoping you could help me with the following small problem. I have a web page with a text area that displays normal text: e.g. Hello Pete how are you I'd like to be able to click a button on the form which opens a popup window where the user can type HTML. e.g Hello <B>Pete</B> how are you. When they close the window the text area on the calling web page display the actual text with the bold writing. I know it's something to do with innerHTML. e.g. Hello Pete how are you. Hope the above makes sense. Pete.
The reply can be seen at PopUpInnerHTML.htm (only for
Internet Explorer - can be easily be adapted for Netscape, but I was too lazy !!)
