I'm still a total noob. But I am trying something and I was hoping someone could help me. I have a very simple idea. I've been researching it but I am so green that I don't seem to be asking the right questions so I thought I'd come to the experts.
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<div class="footer"> </div>
$('.footer').html('<p>This is the Footer</p>');
I thought that the because the html doc (seen above) calls the .js it would automatically (magically) find the footer class and insert the html. Clearly I am wrong. I am looking it up over at w3schools but I would appreciate any enlightenment anyone could offer. Please be kind, I really am new at this...
