    textarea to innerHTML

    Hello everyone!
    I have a small "problem". I'm new in Javascript. I want whatever I write in a textarea field being typed automatically in a <p> I have the script needed but
    it gets delayed -1 character. Here's the script. Paste it and tell me what's wrong

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function writeText(txt)

    <form name="form1">
    <textarea cols="45" rows="5" name="comment" onkeyPress="writeText(document.form1.comment.value)"></textarea>

    <p id="desc"></p>

    Thanks in advance

    PS: By the way... How can I make it appear some HTML code when there characters start to be typing?

    Instead of using onKeyPress, use onKeyUp or onChange.
