    Error message: Object is expected

    Could anyone tell me how to solve the "object is expected" error in the code below:
    <HEAD>
    <script language=javascript type=text/javascript>

    function AmazonNextPage(NextPage)
    {
    document.write("the next page is ")
    document.write(NextPage)
    }

    function AmazonStartPage(SearchPage)
    {
    document.write("the start page is ")
    document.write(SearchPage)

    document.write("<input type='button' value='step2' onclick='javascript:AmazonNextPage(2);' />")
    }

    </script>
    </HEAD>
    <BODY>

    <input type="button" value="step1" onclick="javascript:AmazonStartPage(1);" />

    </BODY>

    I have analysed my previous problem and created this small simple example out of it.
    I realise that the problem is due to the document.write method, for it opens a new window in which the second function is not available. This results in the error message "object is expected". I don't think I am the fist who ever bumped into this problem.

    When you write to the document, the 'old' stuff is gone, try writing to a span object:
    PHP Code:
    <HEAD
    <
    script language=javascript type=text/javascript

    function 
    AmazonNextPage(NextPage

    document.write("the next page is "
    document.write(NextPage


    function 
    AmazonStartPage(SearchPage

    first.innerHTML "the start page is "
    first.innerHTML += SearchPage

    first
    .innerHTML += "<input type='button' value='step2' onclick='javascript:AmazonNextPage(2);' />"


    </
    script
    </
    HEAD
    <
    BODY

    <
    span id="first"><input type="button" value="step1" onclick="javascript:AmazonStartPage(1);" /></span>

    </
    BODY
