document.createElement not working on Firefox

document.createElement not working on Firefox

Javascript method document.createElement() worked perfectly in all browsers other than FireFox. I changed this part

1:var newElement = document.createElement("<input name='"+elementName+"' id='" + elementName + "' type='hidden'>");

to this:

3: newElement.setAttribute('id',elementName);

4: newElement.setAttribute('type','hidden');

and now its working with all browsers
