Ajax php/mysql reply into html table

Hi Guys,

I'm working in a php/mysql environment. I have a page where I enter a zip code and using ajax it should display the salesman's name and phone.

in my php file I am sending the results back using:

 echo "<tr>";
 echo  "<td>". $row->Name ."</td></tr>";
 echo  "<tr><td>".$ row->Cell_Phone ."</td></tr>";

when I get it back from the php file I am inserting it into a div with an id=Nametxt, and into a text field  id=Email  using:



The div shows:                Dave Brown888-452-7899

The text field shows this:         <td>Dave Brown</td></tr><tr><td>888-452-7899</td></tr>

Why doesn't the table show correctly in the div?

I want it to be:                Dave Brown

"<td>Dave Brown</td></tr><tr><td>888-452-7899</td></tr>" is not a complete table therefore it won't format like one.  This is the minimum you need.
<table><tr><td>Dave Brown</td></tr><tr><td>888-452-7899</td></tr></table>
