1) document.getElementById("friends").innerHTML
2) you need to do this onload
3) you need an object array

DEMO

<html>
<head>
<script>
var friends = [
{name:"Tom"},
{name:"Dick"},
{name:"Harry"}
];
window.onload=function() {
  var div = document.getElementById("friends");
  for (var i=0, n=friends.length; i < n; i++)	{
    div.innerHTML += '<a href="#" onclick="return false">' + friends[i].name + '</a>';
  }
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="friends"></div>
</body>
</html>

@sankhe_dipti
1) Why attach a file when you can post the code
2) you are not adding anything to the discussion:
You do not access the div correctly
You use javascript: prefix which is not necessary
You add complexity with visibility and show/hide
