Hi Experts!

 I have a question realted to a dropdown menu which populates a textfield. I have the following code. The problem is the following:
I have 4 options in the dropdown menu. The textarea must be populated with only 2 selected options.
When I change the option from the dropdown it also changes in the textarea overwritting the previous selected one. I wanted that the first option selected is still there and the 2nd is added after the first one.
How this can be done?

Thank you in advance!
function select(source,dest) {
                var destFeld = document.getElementById(dest);
                destFeld.value = source.value;
    }

Like this:

                var destFeld = document.getElementById(dest);
                destFeld.value += source.value;
    }

@ Zvonko:
 Thanks! It works, but it adds the 2nd option after the 1rst one. I would like to have it on the next row.

Check this:
function select(source,dest) {
                var destFeld = document.getElementById(dest);
                destFeld.value += source.value+'\n';
