How To Insert Code With Javascript, How to insert into a div an amountof code

i,
I have the next html page
<html>
<head>
<script>
<!--
function insertcode()
{
var code ="<p> blablabal babala babababab</p><h1>here comes
header</h1><span>fadfaf a<a href=\"fadfaf\" >anchor</a>blalbababa</span>"
var myText = document.create TextNode(code);
document.getEle mentById("conte nt").appendChil d(myText);
}
-->
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="content">
</div>
<a href="javascrip t:insertcode()" >Insert Code</a>
</body>
</html>

This code insert the data as text. The html tags are not treated like
markup. I need to insert the code in a time. I mean i CAN NOT go tag per
tag. (E.g. document.create Element("p")... )
Is there any method to insert a pice of html code into a div and keep it
like code not like text in Javascript?
I hope you understand my problem. If not please tell me. Thanks in
advanced for your help.

Will this help? Watch for word-wrap.

<head>
<title>inner.ht ml</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function insertcode() {
var code ="<p> blablabal babala babababab</p>";
code += "<h1>here comes header</h1>";
code += "<span>fadfafa< a href=\"fadfaf\" >anchor</a>blalbababa</span>";
document.getEle mentById("conte nt").innerHTM L = code;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="content">
<a href="javascrip t:insertcode()" >Insert Code</a>
</div>

You mean a HTML _document_ which may be displayed as many pages and
which is invalid, BTW:
<html>
The DOCTYPE declaration is missing before that tag.

<http://validator.w3.or g/>
<head>
<script>
The `type' attribute is missing.
<!--
Scripts do not need and should not to be commented out this way.
function insertcode()
{
var code ="<p> blablabal babala babababab</p><h1>here comes ^^
The `script' element is considered to end here in SGML, so
you have to escape ETAGO delimiters within CDATA content.
header</h1><span>fadfaf a<a href=\"fadfaf\" >anchor</a>blalbababa</span>"
var myText = document.create TextNode(code);
1. You have not tested for the existence of the host method
document.create TextNode() before calling it. This is error-prone.

<http://pointedears.de/scripts/test/whatami>

2. This will create a _text node_, not child elements. If you still want to
create child elements that way, you can use the proprietary `innerHTML'
property; however, I strongly recommend to use standardized DOM methods
instead.
document.getEle mentById("conte nt").appendChil d(myText);
Same here: Feature tests have not been performed prior.
} -->
This is a syntax error as `--' is the decrement operator, and `>'
is not a valid operand. Remove that line, you don't need it.
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="content">
</div>
<a href="javascrip t:insertcode()" >Insert Code</a>
Don't use the proprietary `javascript:' URI scheme, use standardized event
handlers, here: onclick. Note that this "link" does not work without
client-side script support, so you better also include it using scripting.
</body>
</html>

This code insert the data as text. The html tags are not treated like
markup.
See above: works as designed.
I need to insert the code in a time.
Why?
I mean i CAN NOT go tag per tag. (E.g. document.create Element("p")... )


Why not? Laziness?

Your document has no doctype declaration.
<head>
<script>
You're missing type attribute here.
<!--
function insertcode()
{
var code ="<p> blablabal babala babababab</p><h1>here comes
header</h1><span>fadfaf a<a href=\"fadfaf\" >anchor</a>blalbababa</span>"
var myText = document.create TextNode(code);
document.getEle mentById("conte nt").appendChil d(myText);
}
This is definitively not best and not correct. If you want to
dynamically insert a block of markup code, then you don't need and
certainly should not create a text node which is markup code: it's
incoherent. Also, as coded, your insertcode function will fail markup
validation. Best is to use DOM 1/2 attributes and methods.
How about:

function InsertCode()
{
if(document.cre ateElement && document.append Child)
{
var objParg = document.create Element("p");
objParg.appendC hild(document.c reateTextNode(" blablabal babala babababab"));
var objH1 = document.create Element("h1");
objH1.appendChi ld(document.cre ateTextNode("he re comes header"));
var objSpan = document.create Element("span") ;
objSpan.appendC hild(document.c reateTextNode(" fadfafa"));
var objLink = document.create Element("a");
objLink.href = "fadfaf"; /* obviously, this will require a real working
value */
objSpan.appendC hild(document.c reateTextNode(" anchor"));
objSpan.appendC hild(objLink);
objSpan.appendC hild(document.c reateTextNode(" blalbababa"));
document.getEle mentById("conte nt").appendChil d(objParg);
document.getEle mentById("conte nt").appendChil d(objH1);
document.getEle mentById("conte nt").appendChil d(objSpan);
};
}

Not tested but I've done often similar code in MSIE 6, Opera 7+, Firefox
1.x, Netscape 7+ and Mozilla-based browsers before and I am almost 100%
sure it will work in those mentionned browsers.
-->
</script>
</head>
<title></title> is mandatory.
<body>
<div id="content">
</div>
<a href="javascrip t:insertcode()" >Insert Code</a>
Using "javascript :" pseudo-protocol is always wrong, incorrect unless
you want to create a bookmarklet.
http://jibbering.com/faq/#FAQ4_24
Protocol scheme "javascript :" will be reported as an error by link
validators and link checkers.
</body>
</html>

This code insert the data as text.
And that data text is markup code...

The html tags are not treated like markup. I need to insert the code in a time. I mean i CAN NOT go tag per
tag. (E.g. document.create Element("p")... )
Why not? This is what I would recommend and what I personally would do.
Is there any method to insert a pice of html code into a div and keep it
like code not like text in Javascript?
innerHTML is a shortcut but that isn't in the DOM specs.
I hope you understand my problem. If not please tell me. Thanks in
advanced for your help.


I understand well your problem. But I must say that your html code could
be improved a lot.
