Getting a handle to a text element using ecmascript...

I have a very simple x-y graph with points.  I am attempting to change the
value of a text element that appears at the top of the graph with the name
of the point that the mouse moves over.  Is there a simple way to reference
the <text> element from the script using an id or class attribute?

Here is the SVG Document...the changeName function obviously doesn't work
and is the problem I am trying to solve.



<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<svg width="400" height="400">
	<title>Graphed Pointer Events Test</title>

		<script type="text/ecmascript">
			function changeName(name) {

		<text id="circleName" x="180" y="20"
font-family="Verdana" font-size="14" fill="black">POINT-0</text>	

	<g id="axis" stroke="black" >
		<line x1="20" y1="0" x2="20" y2="380" stroke-width="2"/>
		<line x1="20" y1="380" x2="400" y2="380" stroke-width="2"/>

		<circle cx="60" cy="20" r="1" fill="red" stroke="black"
stroke-width="1" onmouseover="changeName('POINT-1')"/>
		<circle cx="60" cy="40" r="1" fill="red" stroke="black"
stroke-width="1" onmouseover="changeName('POINT-2')"/>
		<circle cx="60" cy="60" r="1" fill="red" stroke="black"
stroke-width="1" onmouseover="changeName('POINT-3')"/>
		<circle cx="60" cy="80" r="1" fill="red" stroke="black"
stroke-width="1" onmouseover="changeName('POINT-4')"/>
		<circle cx="80" cy="80" r="1" fill="red" stroke="black"
stroke-width="1" onmouseover="changeName('POINT-5')"/>
