    if (i%5==4) {
    output +="<div style='clear:both'></div>"

    document.getElementById("someContainer").innerHTML = output
    $("input").on("click", function() {
    $("span").text("Clicked ID: " + this.value);
    $("textarea").on("click", function() {
    $("span").text("Clicked ID: " + this.value);

    In the first <script> section only this line is executed:
    var xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
    Which sets up the AJAX variable. Nothing else is ever called.
    The second <script> section does execute. You end up setting in the
    $("textarea").on("click", function() {
    	$("span").text("Clicked ID: " + this.value);
    You really do not want the first script to do anything because it is wrong(Has many errors) and your HTML does not work with it.
