Can someone tell me what is wrong with the following
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
  <head>
  <script type="text/javascript">
  function TextInsert() {
	document.getElementById("MyEdit").innerHtml="My new text!";
  }
  </script>
  </head>
  <body onload=TextInsert()>
  <div id="MyEdit">&nbsp;</div>
  </body>
</html>

javascript is case sensitive, change your code to:

document.getElementById("MyEdit").innerHTML="My new text!";

also, put your function call in quotes:

<body onload="TextInsert():>
