Writing Javascript to a specific <td> tag.

I would like to write the Javascript error to id"tel" <td> tag, on the same page. How would i go about doing this?
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function validate_required(field,alerttxt)
{
with (field)
{
if (value==null||value=="")
  {document.write(alerttxt);return false;}
else {return true}
}
}function validate_form(thisform)
{
with (thisform)
{
if (validate_required(email,"Email must be filled out!", 'tel')==false)
  {email.focus();return false;}
}
}
</script>
</head><body>
<form action="submitpage.htm"
onsubmit="return validate_form(this)"
method="post">
Email: <input type="text" name="email" size="30">
<input type="submit" value="Submit"> 
</form><table width="200" border="1">
  <tr>
    <td id="tel">&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
