Default Refreshing page loses content


I'm populating a div using the innerHTML command, but when the page is refreshed, the content is lost, do you know how I can stop this?

Many thanks

Not much you can do, scripted changes to the dom only affect the in memory object, they are not saved to the underlying file.
You have a number of options:
  • Stores changes made server side in a session variable or to a database.
  • Store changes made client side using a cookie if they are small or the user store if it's IE and the users allow this form of storage.
  • Use a frameset and store data in one frame which remains while the other changes

You are obviously going to have to keep track of whether changes need re-applying.
What exactly is your overall objective?
