If the JS code is:

  var para = document.createElement("p");

doesn't this generate (thanks) a paragraph with the id of description and
should I be able to style it in the stylesheet?

Like I said, I may have messed with something else but if I am correct
above, then I can search for whatever else I may have messed up.
