Thanks for the clarifications and the link to the doc. Didn't know  
about that.

Yep, normally that's what I do too, eliminate everything piece by  
piece and see where the error lies. But in this case, it is pretty  
complicated to do so...

And it's more than one click to get to the page I have the problem  
with; that's why I didn't send the URL with the mail.

In case you still wonna see it - and it's worth having a quick look  
to the site :-)) :

	1) http://geodata.grid.unep.ch
	2) select a key word, such as "population density"
	3) select a variable on a "National level"; click on "continue"
	4) select a year; click on "continue"
	5) select the map module
	6) at the left bottom, select the "Trend Analysis" tab, click the  
check box and select a starting year. And here's the problem.

That's the code for the drop-down menu now:

<select name="diff_year1" size="1" style="font-family: Verdana; font- 
size: 9px; color: #333333" onclick="window.event.cancelBubble=true;">
	<option value='2000'>2000</option>
	<option value='1995'>1995</option>
	<option value='1990'>1990</option>

But it still does what it shouldn't do...
