php with embedded javascript outputs newlines on HTML tags?

I have a php page with JavaScript to be used on a wordpress page,but when the page is generated all <div> <p> etc. appends new lines. Example :

Test.php ->

<script type="text/javascript">
alert('hello<div>world</div>');
</script>
When I view-source there is new lines on each html-tags : <div><p> - which breaks the JavaScript syntax

I tried to remove filter wpautop on content, but no go :(

Thanks

You should use Element.html like this:
<div id="my-pageid">
<div id="id-to-insert-html">
</div>

- - -

<script>
var el = document.getElementById('id-to-insert-html');
el.html = '<div><p>hello world</p></div>';
</script>

I think that the problem is because you are inserting the code in visual editor mode and you have to insert that only in text mode, You can change the mode of the editor in the right-top tab in the entry editor.

The issue is not the code it self, the alert stuff is just an example and not relevant.

The reason is that I am using a plugin for wordpress that just dont work, so I found out that the javascript is broken due to the line breaks and <p>.

I can't see this as an editor issue, the line break is happening in the middle of a string, and I am using clean nano on linux.

This is clearly a wordpress issue/feature, because if I run the page as a normal php page on apache2 there is no issues.
