I am using the code below to move items to the "second" div..It works fine to move them. I know need it to move the new item to the "second" div but remove the current item too. Any help would be greatly appreciated..thanks
<script language="javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {
		$("a").click(function() {
			$(this).parent().remove("#second");
			$(this).parent().appendTo("#second");
			$("<input/>").attr({
				id: $(this).attr("value"),
				style: "border:none;font-weight:bold;background-color:white;",
				value : "I'm "+$(this).attr("value")
			}).appendTo("#second");
		});
	});
</script>
