When you have some code like this:
<span>I</span><span> love</span><span> her.</span>
The web page looks like this:
I love her.
But if the code looks like this:
<span>I</span><span id="lovespan"></span><span> her.</span>
And then you have a code line in JavaScript like this:
document.getElementById("lovespan").innerHTML=" love";
The web page looks like this:
Ilove her.
When changing the innerHTML, the space at the beginning of the word " love" is dropped. I could do this:
document.getElementById("lovespan").innerHTML=" love";
But I want the word "love" to wrap to the next line if need be. Any ideas on how to display "I love her." by setting the innerHTML?
