Dynamically populate an element styled with white-space: pre

Assume: $ = document.getElementById; pre = $(‘pre-text-element’); //pre-text-element is the ID of my pre tag element You cannot use: $(‘element’).innerHTML = ‘line1\nline2’; //will not work in IE7 You must do this: e = $(‘element’); while(kid=e.firstChild) { e.removeChild(kid) } //remove all children in the e.appendChild(‘line1\nline2’); Lame, huh?
