ie7 blocking html select list

100+
P: 110
Hi All,

I find this incredibly strange, but ie7 my html select list is being blocked by the pop-up blocker.

Not sure why this is, and so far doing a search hasn't pointed me to an answer.
IE6 is fine. I know I could just change the security settings, but this is more for other users than for my own use.

Here's the code I'm using, but I don't see any problems in it, and eclipse doesn't display any errors.
Please don't tell me Microsoft has set the default IE7 to think that non-javascript dropdowns are a security threat,

[html]
<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
<form>
<fieldset>

<legend>Select day to start new schedule</legend>



<label for="date1"></label>

<input name="startDate" id="startDate" class="date-pick" class="required" />

<br />

Use as template <select name="template"><option value="" >blank</option><option value="38">2008-02-18

- first week</option><option value="39">2008-02-26 - </option><option value="40">2008-03-10 - march

break</option><option value="41">2008-03-17 - </option><option value="79">2008-04-21 - </option><option

value="52">2008-03-31 - </option><option value="78">2008-04-14 - Confrence In</option><option value

="77">2008-04-07 - </option><option value="50">2008-03-03 - </option><option value="51">2008-03-24 -

</option> </select><br />

Schedule Name (optional)<input type="text" / name="sched_name"><br />

<input type="hidden" name="cid" value="10"></input>

<input type="submit" value="Create Schedule"></input>

</fieldset>
</form>

</body>
</html>
[/html]

thanks for the help,
Pete

It may be because you are using xhtml end tags for an html document. Remove the slashes on the closing elements. Also, there is no end tag for <input>. Remove that. Validate for other errors.

looks like this might just have something to do with my install of ie7 which is running as 'stand-alone' so I can run ie6 at the same time.

Sorry for the confusion,
Pete
