<html>
<head>
<script>
function createPage() {
document.write("I am creating a page\n");


}
</script>
</head>
<body onLoad="createPage()">

Hello World !


</body>
</html>


***************

Question --- I only see "("I am creating a page" when load this page. Why "Hello World!" is not printed ? I thought it is part of <body>, right ?

document.write() replaces the current page when executed after load.

It's a dinosaur -- don't ever use it. There is no modern use for document.write(). There are better ways to do anything that document.write() used to be used for.
