Using ajax to update an anchor tag with href and name

I know how to use ajax to update from one text box to another using the onkeyup event.

I would like to update an anchor tag in the form of <a href="ajax_href">ajax_text/>

There will be two text boxes, one to type the href= and the other to type the text for the href label.

So my question do I do that?  Please show code....
