Changes to Javascript Doesn't Work in Mac Netscape 6

I made major changes to my scripts in
http://www.dcs-chico.com/~denmarks/amtrak.html

It works fine in IE but nothing happens when a selection is made in Mac
Netscape 6. Is this problem just with this specific browser? Does it
work with yours? Make a selection from each of the 3 menus on the left
and see if corresponding data appears on the right.

If you can find a problem please let me know.

One big change was removing the FORM surrounding my SELECT OPTION
menus. I'm trying to simplify the scripts and HTML.

BTW: I know I don't have the latest browser but it is the latest that
will work with my operating system. I usually use IE which is not the
latest either.

The page works fine in Opera 7.22/Win.

As a possible fix, try to make sure that all methods and properties
use fully-qualified references. For example, in amtrak1.js, line 4:

iFrameWindow=frames["theFrame"];

[Repeated on line 47]

The frames collection is a property of the window object. Netscape
might require that you access it as such:

iFrameWindow=window.frames["theFrame"];

Try it. It might do the trick.

It worked in Netscape with frame['theFrame'] prior to the latest
changes. My latest changes did not change that.
