capturing innerHTML content through POST

Is there easy way of capturing innerHTML content when the user submits the form? I tried using a hidden input field which works, however...is there any other way of doing this without using hidden input field?

The innerHTML of what?

the innerHTML of a span element with text only, no form elements.

So you want to post this innerHTML content to the server without using form elements?

I hope this helps:

[HTML]function sendData() {
var form = document.getElementById('myForm');
inputNode = document.createElement("input");
inputNode.type = "hidden";
inputNode.name = "hiddenKey";
inputNode.value = document.getElementById('key').innerHTML;

and the HTML code:
[HTML]<form action="mypage" name="myForm" id="myForm" method="get">
<span id="key">some data</span>
<input type="button" onclick="sendData();return false;" value="submit" />

Also if you use XMLHttpRequest you later can remove all the hidden inputs from code.
