    Hi,

    I have a function that takes the innerhtml from a div called orderouterwrap, generates some new content called str, and then writes the new string to orderouterwrap. However, it adds on spurious closing divs (</divs>) at the end for no reason.

    starting markup:

    <div id="orderouterwrap">
    <!-- -->
    </div>

    JS:
    new_str=document.getElementById('orderouterwrap').innerHTML;
    new_str+=str;

    alert(new_str);

    OUTPUT START:
    <!-- -->
    <div class="orderwrp" id="order0">
    <div class="name">stuff<div>
    </div>
    OUTPUT END

    document.getElementById('outerorderwrap').innerHTML=new_str;

    alert(document.getElementById('outerorderwrap').innerHTML);

    OUTPUT START:
    <!-- -->
    <div class="orderwrp" id="order0">
    <div class="name">stuff<div>
    </div>

    </div></div>
    OUTPUT END

    What on earth is going on?

    thanks in advance,
    Conrad

    Because there's a mistake in the first output itself,

    <div class="orderwrp" id="order0">
    <div class="name">stuff<div> <-------- the last div in this line should be a closing tag
    </div>

    so to close all the tags, it's adding 2 more div close tags
