Yes, it is possible to change the content of the HTML in javascript. Usually HTML content will be in HTML tags such as <p>, <span>, etc. In javascript, we have DOM methods that have an ability to access the HTML tags. Those methods, such as document.getElementById(), document.getElementByTagName(), etc., make use of tags to change the HTML content.

Example-1

In the following example, the content in the span tag is changed using a javascript DOM method document.getElementById()
