In the following snippet everything works as expected, but when I click Show Source Firefox produces this error:

[11:07:30.630] TypeError: document.getElementbyId is not a function @ http://localhost:8888/html5/native-rich-text.html:10

And Safari produces a similar error. What is causing this?

function showSource() {
var content = document.getElementbyId(edit).innerHTML
content.replace(/</g, '&lt;');
content.replace(/>/, '&gt: ');
prompt(Your Code:, content);


function createLink() {
var url = prompt(Enter URL:, http://);
if (url)
document.execCommand(createlink, false, url);

<h1>Native Rich Text</h1>
<p>No textboxes here, that's a &lt;div&gt; element!</p>
<input type=button value=Bold onclick=document.execCommand('bold', false, null);>
<input type=button value=Italic onclick=document.execCommand('italic', false, null);>
<input type=button value=Underline onclick=document.execCommand('underline', false, null);>
<input type=button value=Add Link onclick=createLink();>
<input type=button value=Show Source onclick=showSource();>
<div id=edit style=border:solid black; height: 300px; width: 400px; contenteditable=true>
