I have a variable that I can display on the page by using the following
<script>document.write(image)</script>



I can copy the result to the browser and it displays the file I require.



What I want to do is to take that variable and use it to specify the src of my background image



`<p style=background-image: url(**image**);>`


I know that this is probably simple to you guys, but I have spent the whole day and am losing a lot of hair over this one. Thanks for your time....

If the element is selectable :



<p id=paragraph>Some text</p>


You can change the style with javascript:



document.getElementById('paragraph').style.background = 'url('+image+')';


if you're creating the paragraph you can do:



var p = document.createElement('p');
p.style.background = 'url('+image+')';
