I used ASP to get the following string from a database. It is currently HTMLEncoded. In it's current state Javascript not allow me to use it, can somone tell me a solution such as changing it out of HTMLencoded or getting Javascript to take it... the code is below.

frames.message.document.body.innerText="<p><i>Editor's Note: Sam Slutsky is father of Jay Slutsky</i></p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;The Bulldogs' next game will be on Monday! Dec 3 at 7:30 p.m. at Newbridge Ice Rink. The team will take on Bethpage.</p>";

Thanks for any help.

Hate to ask questions when you're looking for answers, but...

Why do you have HTML tags imbedded in the middle of strings, stored on a database?

Just what do you mean by you want Javascript to take it?

There is much more here than meets the eye, Watson!
