Difference between innerHTML & innerText ?
hey whats the basic difference between innerHTML & innerText ?
Chris Shaw26,676 Points
The key difference between the two methods is
innerText returns a string rather than the original node tree within the element itself which is what
innerHTML does. I've set up a simple fiddle to demonstrate this in action.
Hope that helps.
