Hi,

I had a problem today with giving a variable to a function inside a onclick function assignment.  

The solution I came up with is this:


At first I was putting:


But the function was getting a 5 regardless of which button was clicked.  I guess that's the last number of the for loop.  In the debugger it came out as a closure.

My question is if there's a better way to set this up?  It seems hacky to be using the innerHtml for a JS function.

Thanks!!
