Adding Break Tags to Input Form

**I'd like to know how to add break tags "<br>" inbetween entry's in
an input form, an example is if the word "yada yada" was entered you
would wind up with y<br>a<br>d<br> a<br> y<br>a<br>d<br> a

I would like to able to add the break tags with a button onClick. I have
no idea where to start, sorry. Any help is appreciated, Thanks Joe

You are likely interested in learning about how to manipulate documents
with DOM methods.
I would like to able to add the break tags with a button onClick. I have
no idea where to start


Start with the following:

http://www.w3.org/DOM/
http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs...y:DOM:Articles

The short lesson is that a document's structure and style can be
"objectifie d". Paragraph(s), sentences, words, characters---printable and
otherwise---can be treated as objects and properties gotten or set and
methods used to alter the objects. The document is structured as a TREE
with branch points (NODES). The document is rendered as a tree in this way
by the document reader/parser when initially loaded/read, but through these
DOM methods in script, these nodes can be INSERTED/APPENDED or REMOVED to
modify the document structure dynamically. A very simplified explanation.

t1 = 'yada yada'

t2 = t1.replace(/( ?[^ ])/g,'$1<br>').rep lace(/<br>$/,'')

alert(t2)

Hi, Can I create an array of tags by assigning same name to these tags? For example, I have two <p> tags with the same name t1. But document.all.b.value=document.all.t.length does not work. It works if the tags are <input type=radio...>. This line is OK:

In the javascript function where I add on to the html in the div if I capture all the data in the previous "records" then after adding the new record I can...

I am trying to dynamically add controls to my page, but am having trouble with controls such as buttons. I have been able to add simple controls such as Label controls, because they can be placed anywhere. I have managed to add Labels using the following code: Dim extralabel As Label = New Label extralabel.Text = "Generated Label" Me.Controls.Add(extralabel)
