I have a div with list of shopping cart items. When users click on "add to cart" button, i would like to add a hyperlink to href to the div.
The div itself shows on mouseover a shopping cart image that I show/hide using javascript.

Now, How can I 1) dynamically add the links to the div.
2) should the links be href or asp:hyperlink.

Please help. any suggetsion would be great. thanks a ton.

you can do
var link = document.createElement("a");



document.getElementById("divId").innerHTML = document.getElementById("divId").innerHTML  + "<a href=''>";

var link = document.createElement("a");
link.setAttribute("href","your url");

if link.setAttribute doesnot work then you can do
link.href="your url";

// to create a label to the link
var lb=document.createTextNode("Link Title");
