Looking for this?

If you want to insert a non-breaking space you can insert it using the
charactor code. Like this:

var nbsp = document.createTextNode( "\u00A0" );            
referenceToWhereYouWantIt.appendChild( nbsp );

where do you want add the space? maybe you need just style margin or padding.

var myElement=getElementById("myDiv");"10px";"10px";"10px";"10px";"10px";"10px";"10px";"10px";

//or short hand"10px 10px 10px 10px";"10px 10px 10px 10px";

Hi rajathilagam,
Check this HTML page .....

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<TITLE>Add Space</TITLE>
<script language=javascript>
      function fnAddSpace()
            var place=document.getElementById("place");
            place.innerHTML="&nbsp;" + place.innerHTML;
<Div id=place><Font Color=Red><B>Helooooo There!</b></Font></Div>
<input type=button onclick="fnAddSpace();" Value="Add a Space">

Hope it helps you....

What does "add space to the element" mean?
