Ajax call a page include javascript

I want to use ajax to call a page, which includes javascript.
In the code below, I use ajax to call search.html and display result in div1.
In search.html, I want to run a javascript code. It seems that it doesn't work.
<form name="search">
<input name="question"  type="text" onkeyup='JavaScript:sendRequest("/search.html?q="+this.value,"div1")'>
</form>
 
<div id="div1">
Display result here.
</div>
 
 
in search.html I want to run the test javascript code:
 
<script type="text/javascript">
document.write("This is my first JavaScript!");
</script>

Hi,

I've also needed to do something similar in the past, and ended up replacing your div which would hold the search.html page content with an iframe, this would allow any javascript to be called and displayed to the user, otherwise only the text of the page would be displayed.

From memory the code below replicates what I used, i'd look into these examples too:

Thanks. But I don't like frame that much. Is there other simple example that can realize this with div? Thanks a lot!
