simple ajax works in chrome and FF but not IE

This code works in Chrome and pulls a second drop down, but it will not work in IE6, (I dont have IE7/8 to check right now, but can later) and it works in FF, in IE it doesn't do anything at all.

Thanks for any help!

php code to push data to page:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <?php
  2. $q=$_GET["q"]; //number
  3. $blown = explode(',',$q);
  4. $q = $blown[0];
  5. $appl = $blown[1];
  7. include "/home/advent1/public_html/secure/connect.php";
  8. $clients= "'$_SESSION[group2]'";
  15. ?>
  17. <select name="lookupanswers">
  18. <option></option>
  19. <?php
  20. $i=1;
  21. while ($i <= '10') {
  22. $p="appl_quest{$i}_yn";
  23. $m="appl_drop_{$q}_{$i}";
  24. $n="quest{$i}_yn";
  25. $sqlappl = "SELECT appl from client_table where appl = {$blown[1]}";
  26. $resultappl = mysql_query($sqlappl) or die(mysql_error());
  27. $appl = mysql_result($resultappl, 0);
  29. $sqlapplquest = "select {$m} from lookup_table where appl = {$appl}";
  30. $resultapplquest = mysql_query($sqlapplquest) or die(mysql_error());
  31. $applquest = mysql_result($resultapplquest, 0);
  33. if ($applquest == '') {
  34. } else { 
  35. ?>
  36. <option value="<?php echo $i; ?>"><?php echo $applquest; ?></option>
  37. <?php
  38. }
  39. $i++;
  40. }
  41. echo $sqlapplquest;
  42. ?>

Its sloppy at best, but i ran outta other tags that i could use there, div kept putting it on the line under.

Its cool, no worries, its really not what ANYONE should use, and i'm not defending it. but it DID work in FF and Chrome, and not in IE, and that should be pointed out. Thats all.

Did you try a <span>? Div is a block element, Span is in-line

it will work, as in stuff will show up, but it doesn't respond to CSS tag selectors, or have as many dom bindings like lang and name.

this should be fixed in the next version of IE.
