Are you after something like this:

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

$(function() {

  .click( eventClick )
  .css( { cursor: "hand" } );


function eventClick() {
  var id = $(this).attr( "rel" );
  if ( $("#"+id).length == 0 ) {
      $("<textarea/>").attr( { id: id } )
  } else {


  <li class="click-me" rel="1">Alpha</li>
  <li class="click-me" rel="2">Bravo</li>
  <li class="click-me" rel="3">Charlie</li>
  <li class="click-me" rel="4">Delta</li>
  <li class="click-me" rel="5">Echo</li>
