I'm stumped about the use of innerHTML.  I have a series of RSS feeds that I only want to show when a user clicks a button.  In order to make this work, I think I need to use innerHTML -- so I can control where on my website the RSS will appear.

Here's the JavaScript code I want to use:
<script language="JavaScript" src="http://jade.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu/feed/feed2js.php?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wnbc.com%2Fnews%2Ftopstory.rss&num=5&utf=y" type="text/javascript"></script>

Yet when I try to incorporate the above code into innerHTML, I get nothing.  
FOR EXAMPLE:

getElementById('RSSdisplay').innerHTML="<script language='JavaScript' src='http://jade.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu/feed/feed2js.php?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wnbc.com%2Fnews%2Ftopstory.rss&num=5&utf=y' type='text/javascript'></script>";

<td id = "RSSdisplay"></td>


Can anyone give me a generic example of how to use the code above with innerHTML?
