In JavaScript we use the write() function of the document object as document.write() to write directly to the HTML document.

document.write("Hello world!");

We can also output HTML tags through the write() function:

document.write("<h1>Hello world!</h1>");

Important: Do not ever use the document.write() function after a document is loaded, as it will overwrite the document!

Modifying the HTML of a web page through JavaScript:
We use the innerHTML property to modify the content of an element in an HTML document. The syntax follows:

document.getElementById( id ).innerHTML= new HTML

The following code example changes the HTML of a web page:


<p id="hw">Hello World!</p>

document.getElementById("hw").innerHTML="Hello World again! ";


The above HTML web page has an element p with the id="hw". We first get the element having the id="hw" and then we use its innerHTML property to make changes to it.

Changing an HTML Attribute
Changing the attribute of an HTML element is very simple. We use the attribute property of the HTML element to change the attribute. The syntax follows:

document.getElementById( id ). attribute=new value

The following example changes the href attribute of the <a> tag:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<a href="http://pickatutorial.com" id="hrf">Computer Tutorials</a>
<script type="text/JavaScript">
document.getElementById("hrf").href = "http://pickatutorial.com/index.htm";


Changing HTML Style
We use the following syntax to change the style of an HTML element:

document.getElementById( id ).style. property = new style

The following example changes the style of a <p> element:


<p id="hw">Hello World!</p>
