innerHTML returns all of the markup and content within a given element.
innerText returns all of text content within a given element.

If you have a HTML document that looks like this:

<HTML><BODY>
<H1><B>Hi<I> There</I></B></H1>
</BODY></HTML>

InnerHTML of H1 would be:

<B>Hi<I> There</I></B>

InnerText of H1 would be:
Hi There
