Refer - document.writeln replacement in jQuery[^].
Quote:
The problem with document.writeln() is that the results will change depending on where in the page you put the script. Your code always appends text to the end of the <body>, so it doesn't have that problem, but it's also not particularly useful. (Also, writeln() doesn't append a <br>, it appends a line break. There's a difference.)

The proper way to insert text dynamically is to create an HTML element that will hold the dynamic text, and set the content of that element:
HTML
<p>Good morning <span id="userName">unknown user</span>.</p>

...


$('#userName').text('Mike') // or append(), or html()

Sorry as I'm new to JQuery, I could not get it.
For example can
document.writeln("aaaaaaaa");
be written as
<script>$('#userName').text('aaaaaaaa');
if I want to write in tha span with id="userName"? BY doing so I didn't get the result as expected...
Pl, clarify! thankx
Yes... You have understood correctly. But to use jQuery, you need to refer the jQuery file.
have you added that?

And please see on the console window of FireBug in FireFox, if you have any errors or not.
