I'd never heard of a jump menu before, but google suggests that it is one
of those nasty (IMO) <select> elements twisted in to a navigation element.

Before you continue I suggest you have a read of:


(If you must use a <select> as a navigation tool then at least implement it
in a semi-accessible way that doesn't *require* JavaScript).

I suspect the problem you are having (and as you failed to provide code
I can't do any more then suspect) is that you have forgotten that XHTML
tags and attributes are case sensitive.

<select ... onChange...> should be <select ... onchange...>
