innerHTMLproperty of elements in IE, is not part of the W3C DOM. Nevertheless, in response to customers' requests, Mozilla- and Gecko-based browsers (such as Netscape 6) decided to support it in builds dated May 19, 2000 or later (Mozilla M16 and later, Netscape 6 PR2 and later).

updateMessage()is called every time the user clicks the button. The number of hits is incremented by one, and the content of the
DIV counteris updated by the
innerHTMLproperty, via a simple assignment. Notice the usage of
getElementById()which is common to both Netscape 6 and Internet Explorer.
