How to return data to a field - DOM

I am really stuck...

Just want to populate a text field with the data from a drop-down, simple eh.
But...the name of the field is "1", no I didn't, but I cannot change it, without days of re-coding Perl.

The simple page I have now is:
[HTML]<html>
<head>
<script language=Javascript>
function Choice()
{
var populateData = document.getElementById("dataSourceID").value;
<!-- alert(populateData); //-->
}
</script>
</head>
<body>

<form>
<select name="dataSource" id="dataSourceID" onChange="Choice();">
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="2">2</option>
<option value="3">3</option>
</select>

<input type=text name="1" id="destinationData">
</form>

</body>
</html>[/HTML]


What I am trying to do is to populate "destinationData" with the selection made from "dataSource".

Any help appreciated,
thank you.
