My current attempt:

$('div.shippingfieldformatting:contains("Address2")');  




<div id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ShippingInfo1_Div3" class="shippingfieldformatting">Address2:<input name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$ShippingInfo1$tbShipAddress2" type="text" id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ShippingInfo1_tbShipAddress2" style="width:255px;" /></div>

Essentially I want to replace the inner html text of "Address2:" with "Address2:&nbsp;&nbsp;" but I want to leave the <input> tag as it is ---- I just want to replace the text portion of the inner html.
