There are a lot of ways to do this. You could include this text in a span. However, I think the cleaner way to do it is to just append a text node with "Thank you for submitting a quote for " after you remove the text node as I demonstrated in my example. Otherwise you are including markup for a functional purpose, and purists might beat you with a trout. -- Matt Warden Miami University Oxford, OH, USA http://mattwarden.com This email proudly and graciously contributes to entropy.
