Quick javascript help

Hello,

I need to add <span>*</span> for each character in the 'info' variable.

It is close but I can not figure out how to get the second function to edit the info variable and save it so I can write it later.

==
info = "<div class=\daysz\">Days<div class=\"infoz\">" + daysLeft + "</div></div><div class=\daysz\">Hours<div class=\"infoz\">" + hrsLeft +"</div></div><div class=\daysz\">Minutes<div class=\"infoz\">" + minsLeft + "</div></div>";

var words = $(".infoz").text().split("");
$(".infoz").empty();
$.each(words, function(i, v) {
    $(".infoz").append($("<span>").text(v));
});
==

Each character in the .infoz not the whole thing.

I have it like this Days 90 but I want to make a box around each one for countdown styling so I need it to be:

<div class="daysz">Days<div class="infoz"><span>9</span><span>0</span></div></div>

If you want to help me just work with the variable that is great too.

split: daysLeft
append: <span>
save as: daysLeft

try this:

var daysLeft = 10;
var hrsLeft = 14;
var minsLeft = 34;

info = "<div class=\"daysz\">Days<div class=\"infoz\">" + AddSpans(daysLeft) + "</div></div><div class=\"daysz\">Hours<div class=\"infoz\">" + AddSpans(hrsLeft) +"</div></div><div class=\"daysz\">Minutes<div class=\"infoz\">" + AddSpans(minsLeft) + "</div></div>";

function AddSpans(s){
    return "<span>" + s.toString().split("").join("</span><span>") + "</span>";
}

alert(info);
