ckeditor is messing up my javascript

I have a page which is using javascript to take the value of a text area and displays it in a div tag. It's like a preview box for the user. Everything works fine, but when I try to turn the text area into an instance of CKEditor my javascript stops working. Any ideas what is causing this? or what I can do to fix it?

Thanks


my javascript function:
<script type="text/javascript">
      function makePreviewBody(txtField){
      document.getElementById('preview_body').innerHTML=document.getElementById('editor1').value;
      }
</script>

There is a table cell with id cke_contents_editor1 which has a textfield containing the source of the editor. That's the textfield you need to send to your function. That should work.
