Dynamic Div Problem

P: 3
Hi all,
I have a prob regarding javascript.
I have a Div in my web page, Now i get that div by getElementById("myDiv") and
append it to a dynamic Div created in the javascript file by appendChild(xx). This works fine for the first time.
But from the next time it will loose the Div in the page and showing null. WHY ??

My code :
Html Page:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.       <Html>
  2.       <body>
  3.           <div id="myDiv"></div>
  4.           <input type="Button" onclick="doSMT();" />
  5.       </body>
  7.       </Html>
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.       function doSMT()
  2.        {
  3.        var xx = document.getElementById("myDiv");
  4.        var yy=document.createElement("DIV");
  5.        yy.appendChild(xx);  <== Problem is Here for second run of this function
  6.        }                                     (ie, for second click)

Surely, you mean:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. xx.appendChild(yy);

You need to append this div to the body:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.body.appendChild(yy);
