You can also use msxml's serializer (it does have one, I believe, though I
have never used it) or write your own serializer to output the xml for
plopping into the textarea.  If you know you will always be dealing with a
certain subset of xml, it probably will not be too hard to write a
javascript serializer.  No need for innerHTML.
