    Default TEXT TO STRING

    I need to generate a string that reads like this...

    Input text:
    PETER
    STEVE
    JOHN

    Output text:
    PETER (1),
    PETER (2),
    STEVE (1),
    STEVE (2),

    I have previously generated a code that would string the input text together for another result but now need the output to look like above result.

    that code was:

    <script language="javascript">

    function fix(starter)
    {
    var toReturn = "";

    var data = document.getElementById("data").innerHTML;
    var lines = data.split("\r\n");
    toReturn = lines.join("', '");
    toReturn = starter + "('" + toReturn + "')"
    document.getElementById('answer').innerHTML = toReturn;

    window.clipboardData.setData("text", toReturn);
    alert('Copied to clipboard!');


    }

    </script>

    <h2>COPY TO CLIP</h2>
    <table>
    <tr>
    <td><b>ENTER:</b></td>
    <td><textarea id="data" rows="10" cols="20"></textarea></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><b>SELECT:</b></td>
    <td>
    <input type="button" value="RESULT" onClick="fix('RESULT')">
    </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><textarea id="answer" rows="10" cols="20"></textarea></td>
    </tr>
    </table>


    }

    Is there an easy way to do this change with out changing too much??

    Please help as its doing my head in!
