hi there...

is it possible to change text on a page that is just on a line (without being in a specific textbox or something)... currently the text i'd like to change is in a DIV, but i can't think of a way to make it change... this is what i have now:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <html>
  2. <script type="text/javascript">
  3. function ChangeText()
  4. {
  5. if (document.getElementById('text').value == "This is the text!") {document.getElementById('textline') == "This is the text!";}
  6. // ??? 
  7. }
  8. </script>
  9.  
  10. <body onLoad = "ChangeText()">
  11. <input type="text" name="text" id="text" value="This is the text!">
  12. <div id="textline">get rid of this text<br></div>
  13. </body>
  14. </html>
  15.  
any ideas?
