Hi,
  I am creating a table using javascript. I have the attached text coming from database. I wanted to show that text in table. if I use cratetextnode, it is displaying all html tags. How can I display the data in html format using javascript.

Please let me know if this is not clear.

Thank  you

Hi,
  Please find my code for creating a table using javascript. The html string I  wanted to convert is this.
data[6] contains a html string that I shown above. I am fine with using Jquery also, but not sure how to use it in below situation
col.appendChild(document.createTextNode(data[6]));

Thank you
function getInterpretation(tr){
	var examID = ReplaceSpaces(tr.getElementsByTagName("input")[1].value);
	var repTable =document.getElementById("reportTbl");
	var lastRow = repTable.rows.length-1,  i;
	  for (i = lastRow; i >= 0; i--) {
		  repTable.deleteRow(i);
	}
	if(examID!="null"){
	var xmlhttp = getxmlHttpRequest();
	var strURL = "getTest.jsp?examID="+examID+"&unique="+'<%=Math.random()%>';
	xmlhttp.open("GET", strURL,true);
	xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=function()
	{
	if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status==200)
	  {
		
			var responseText = xmlhttp.responseText.split("<br>");
			
			for(var i=0;i<responseText.length-1;i++) {
			
			var data = responseText[i].split("<td>");
			var data = responseText[i].split("<td>");
			
			var tblBody = document.createElement("tbody");
			var row = document.createElement("tr");
						
			var cell = document.createElement("td");
			var patientName = document.createTextNode("Patient Name: "+data[2]);
		
			cell.appendChild(patientName);
			cell.style.cssText="font-weight:bold;";
			row.appendChild(cell);
			tblBody.appendChild(row);
			var row = document.createElement("tr");
		  	var col = document.createElement("td");
		  	col.appendChild(document.createTextNode("Exam  :"+data[1]));
			col.style.cssText="font-weight:bold;";
			row.appendChild(col);
			tblBody.appendChild(row);
			var row = document.createElement("tr");
		  	var col = document.createElement("td");
		  	col.appendChild(document.createTextNode("Exam Date  :"+data[0]));
			col.style.cssText="font-weight:bold;";
			row.appendChild(col);
			tblBody.appendChild(row);
			var row = document.createElement("tr");
		  	var col = document.createElement("td");
		  	col.appendChild(document.createTextNode("Signed Date  :"+data[3]));
			col.style.cssText="font-weight:bold;";
			row.appendChild(col);
			tblBody.appendChild(row);
			var row = document.createElement("tr");
		  	var col = document.createElement("td");
		  	col.appendChild(document.createTextNode("Reading Radiologist  :"+data[4]));
			col.style.cssText="font-weight:bold;";
			row.appendChild(col);
			tblBody.appendChild(row);
			var row = document.createElement("tr");
		  	var col = document.createElement("td");
		  	col.appendChild(document.createTextNode("Signing Radiologist  :"+data[5]));
			col.style.cssText="font-weight:bold;";
			row.appendChild(col);
			tblBody.appendChild(row);
			var row = document.createElement("tr");
		  	var col = document.createElement("td");
		  	col.appendChild(document.createTextNode("Interpretation   :"));
			col.style.cssText="font-weight:bold;";
			row.appendChild(col);
			tblBody.appendChild(row);
			var row = document.createElement("tr");
		  	var col = document.createElement("td");
			col.appendChild(document.createTextNode(data[6]));
			col.setAttribute("colSpan", "2");
			row.appendChild(col);
			
			tblBody.appendChild(row);
			
			repTable.appendChild(tblBody);
		}
	  }
	}
	xmlhttp.send();
	}
}

first pay attention that you do the split twice with no reason


var row = document.createElement("tr");
                    var col = document.createElement("td");
                                    col.setAttribute("id", "col6");
                  col.setAttribute("colSpan", "2");
                  row.appendChild(col);
                  
                  tblBody.appendChild(row);

$('#col6').html(data[6]));
