I have a label called lblField1, and a drop down called ddlField1... when ddlField1 changes I want to update the text in lblField1 to read whatever the selected text reads in ddlField1.

To do this I am attempting to set the onchange attribute as below, however this does not work.

<select name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$ddlField1" id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ddlField1" onchange="document.getElementById("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_lblField1").innerHtml=document.getElementById("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ddlField1").selectedValue;">

javascript is case sensitive. Change:
.innerHtml

to:
.innerHTML

If the problem persists, try:
<select name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$ddlField1" id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ddlField1" onchange="document.getElementById("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_lblField1").innerHTML=document.getElementById("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ddlField1").value;">
OR:
<select name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$ddlField1" id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ddlField1" onchange="document.getElementById("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_lblField1").innerHTML=document.getElementById("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ddlField1").options[ document.getElementById("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ddlField1").selectedIndex ].value;"> 
OR if you prefer the text:
<select name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$ddlField1" id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ddlField1" onchange="document.getElementById("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_lblField1").innerHTML=document.getElementById("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ddlField1").options[ document.getElementById("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ddlField1").selectedIndex ].text;">
