I have spent days trying to get this web page to function as intended. If I have the .js in a separate file and reference it from the web page <head>, the page works fine. However, once it is embedded instead, nada. This is the entire web page coding, including the .js.

    }
}





function initCountry(country) {
  populateCountry(country);
  populateState();
  populateCity();
}


</script>



</body>
</html>

The problem 'might' be in the location, but I am not sure. This is the piece of that code for that:

inputSel.setAttribute("onchange","java_script: if (this.selectedIndex!=0) {window.location='' + (this.options[this.selectedIndex].text) + '.html';}");

Any and all suggestions are welcome. I've had tremendous support in building this .js, and I thank those who have contributed. Feel free to copy and use it.
