Sorry, not sure if that helps you, since you description is a bit
You have a javascript function "Find" that gets called and then should
the content of the div "spot-light". What's that to do with the other

Anyway, that's some code I used to create a list
it's more complex in the original, I pasted just those parts, that
show how
to insert a div and set some text):

var row = document.createElement("div");
var col1 = document.createElement("div");
coltext1 = document.createTextNode(;


this uses prototype in the last line.
