    Link url to result in resultbox.

    I am trying to set up a small legend type html. What I am trying to accomplish is to give the user a description depending on the abbv they pick from the drop down. This all works fine, however I now want to improve this to actually give them a link to a site if they want to research the description further. I can get it to work if I do document.write but I want the link to go into the text box. I also thought about making a button to the side that would probably need some sort of function to call each url. That may come down the road but the simpler way would be nice. I have a js called abbs there is actually two ways to do the drop downs but I am only concerned with adding links to the top one. On the CCVT option I have added a link but the only way I can get it to work is through document.write.

    Here is my JS code:

    function findMEAN(){ 	    var abb = document.listNAME.abbWRD.value;  		if (abb == "AEP"){ 			abbs = ("American Electric Power") ;} 		 		else 			if (abb == "A"){ 			abbs = ("AMP") ;} 		 		else 			if (abb == "AC"){ 			abbs = ("ALTERNATING CURRENT") ;} 		 		else 			if (abb == "ACI"){ 			abbs = ("AMERICAN CONCRETE INSTITUTE") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "ACB"){ 			abbs = ("AIR CIRCUIT BREAKER") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "AISC"){ 			abbs = ("AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF STEEL CONSTRUCTION") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "ANSI"){ 			abbs = ("AMERICAN NATIONAL STANDARDS INSTITUTE") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "ARO"){ 			abbs = ("AUTOMATIC RECLOSING OPERATION") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "ASCE"){ 			abbs = ("AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERS") ;}  		else 			if (abb == "ASTM"){ 			abbs = ("AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR TESTING AND MATERIAL") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "AUX"){ 			abbs = ("AUXILUARY") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "AWG"){ 			abbs = ("AMERICAN WIRE GAUGE") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "BCT"){ 			abbs = ("BUSHING CURRENT TRANSFORMER") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "BIL"){ 			abbs = ("BASIC INSULATION LEVEL") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "BOM"){ 			abbs = ("BILL OF MATERIAL") ;}  		else 			if (abb == "BPD"){ 			abbs = ("BUSHING POTENTIOAL DEVICE") ;} 		 		else 			if (abb == "BPLC"){ 			abbs = ("BROADBAND POWER LINE CARRIER") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "BT"){ 			abbs = ("BUS TIE") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "CAB"){ 			abbs = ("CABLE") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "CAT#"){ 			abbs = ("CATALOG NUMBER") ;}  		else 			if (abb == "CB"){ 			abbs = ("CIRCUIT BREAKER") ;} 			 		else 			if (abb == "CCVT"){ 			abbs = ("COUPLING CAPACITOR VOLTAGE TRANSFORMER") ;

    So in summary everything is working just want to make the result in the result box be able to be clinked to a specific link assigned. Thank you in advance.

    Please try a repost of your code including line breaks ... otherwise you will most probably have to wait for an answer
