When I want to add to an already loaded page, I use innerHTML.
Just make a DIV and then write to its innerHTML attribute.
Ex: div1.innerHTML = "this is inside the div!";

HTH,

Ummm just wondering but how exactly would this apply to my page as i want to call the function if the user clicks the 'selfserve' option..
function selfserveupdate()
{
document.write("<div id="selfserveCELL")
document.write(selfserveCELL.innerHTML = "YOU SELECTED SELF SERVE";
}
is this how is should be applied or is there another way?.

Add a div element to your existing code:
Code:
Self Serve: 
          <input type="radio" name="type" value="selfserve" onclick="selfservupdate();" />
          </strong><div id="divMessage"></div></td>
In your function have:
Code:
function selfservupdate()
{
var oOutput = docuemtnt.getElementById("divMessage");
oOutput.innerHTML = "I must read other answers, especially those posted by Snib, more carefully";
}
As a side matter if this is designed for IE beware, IE cannot handle xhtml properly and will often fail to display or run code correctly for no apperent reason.
