I am trying to create an html select tag based on the results I get back from a web service.  The web services creates the html.  I get the return string and want to place it in my web page.  I am getting a string back but it is not showing up as html but just as a string.  This is the results from the web service:

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
  <string xmlns="http://audintranet/SIREJVSvc"><SELECT id='OpenAcctgPeriodsSelect' onChange='GetJVNo();'><OPTION value='4,2009'>April 2009</OPTION></SELECT></string>

What shows up in the web page is the select statement as a string.  The way I place it in the page is by the following:

document.getelementbyid("myDiv").innerHTML = httpResponse.responseText

How in the world do I get my string to show up as html?

Maybe that works.  I ended up doing this:

 var xmlDoc=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM");
