I am developing a very simple function that should allow me to display a countdown message:

var myTable=document.getElementById("myTable");
var myHTML0 = myTable.outerHTML;
var j=0;
var T=5;
for (g = 0; g<T; g++) {
      j = T-g;
      myMsg = "We have "+j+" seconds missing to go.";
      myHTML = myHTML0.substring(0,myHTML0.indexOf("We"))      +myMsg+myHTML0.substring(myHTML0.indexOf("We")+2,myHTML0.length);
***      var k = setTimeout("document.getElementById('myNote').innerHTML = myHTML",       g*1000);
      myHTML ="";
Unfortunately, I canno manage to spot the correct syntax of line ***. Can you suggest how? Thanx.
