Why not simply:

XML
markup = [];

markup.push('<html>');
markup.push('<head>');
markup.push('</head>');
markup.push('<body>');
markup.push('<h1>Sample \'StringBuilder\' HTML</h1>');
markup.push('</body>');
markup.push('</html>');

alert(markup.join('\n\r'));


markup.toString() could also be used if there is no need to add any separator. Uses native Javascript with no need for AJAX, or ASP.NET. Should therefore work cross-platform and cross-browser.

No, my question is why create a dependency on ASP and AJAX at all when there's really no need to? If OOP purity is your requirement, then create a stringBuilder class based on the above, which is then OO and extensible. In fact, I since found some examples where others have done just that. E.g.: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/ajax/JavascriptStringBuilderEx.aspx
