    <br> in DHTML text replacement?

    Figured this section was as close to DHTML as it gets here, so...

    I'm trying to replace some text in a span (id="description1") using the following script:

    onclick="description1.innerText='Blurb One.<br><br><br>Blurb Two.';"

    The idea is to have 'Blurb One' followed by 3 linebreaks then 'Blurb Two', so Blurb Two is 3 lines lower.
    The text is being replaced, but is showing each <br> as text on one line, rather than using them as linebreaks.

    So basically I'm looking for the way to have linebreaks in this script.

    Any solutions?

    TIA
