Hi,

I have a menu on the left of my page and when a button is clicked, i want the textarea in the middle of the page to change.  I figured out how to do that, but only in plain text.  When i change the value to hey<br>hi, it shows that exactly, but i want it to show:

hey
hi

is there a way to do this with a textarea?  Or is there another way to do this that is easier?  Thanks!
-Kyle

<html>
<head>
<LINK REL=STYLESHEET TYPE="text/css"
HREF="style.css">
</head>
<body>
<form name="form" id="form">
<input type=hidden id="homehidden" value="
HOME<br>hey2
"><input type=hidden id="abouthidden" value="
about
"><input type=hidden id="10hidden" value="
10 goals
"><input type=hidden id="rockshidden" value="
rocks
"><input type=hidden id="topicshidden" value="
topics
"><input type=hidden id="meetingshidden" value="
meetings
">
<table width=100% border=1 class="h3">
<tr><td><a onclick="document.getElementById('body').value = document.getElementById('homehidden').value" style="cursor:pointer;cursor:hand"><img src="home.gif" height=70></a></td><td rowspan=6><textarea cols=100 rows=20 readonly id="bodyfdsfadsf" class="textarea">hey<br>hi</textarea></td></tr>
<tr><td><a onclick="document.getElementById('body').value = document.getElementById('abouthidden').value" style="cursor:pointer;cursor:hand"><img src="about.gif" height=70></a></td></tr>
<tr><td><a onclick="document.getElementById('body').value = document.getElementById('10hidden').value" style="cursor:pointer;cursor:hand"><img src="10.gif" height=70></a></td></tr>
<tr><td><a onclick="document.getElementById('body').value = document.getElementById('rockshidden').value" style="cursor:pointer;cursor:hand"><img src="rocks.gif" height=70></a></td></tr>
<tr><td><a onclick="document.getElementById('body').value = document.getElementById('topicshidden').value" style="cursor:pointer;cursor:hand"><img src="topics.gif" height=70></a></td></tr>

textarea, as its names indicates, displays text, not html.

if you want a line break between "HOME" and "hey2", use this:

<input type=hidden id="homehidden" value="
HOME
hey2
">

if you want to display HTML, then use an iframe.

note that you should rename id="bodyfdsfadsf" into id="body"
... and maybe use some othe id than "body", it's confusing.
