Tricky. You haven't said what the error is, and we can't just run it and 
see as you've left all the server-side ASP stuff in your post.

The only problem I can see in a brief look over the code is:

> for (var i = 0; i < form1.PROP_SUB_T.length; i++)

You've tried to read from the variable named 'form1' here, but nowhere 
in your script have you actually defined 'form1'.

Now, if you had a <form name="form1"> I could understand it working only 
in IE - IE dumps a number of named page elements directly into 'window' 
scope so you can get away with refering to a 'formName' directly instead 
of the more correct 'document.forms.formName'.

However, you don't, so it shouldn't work on IE either.

Is this related to whatever problem you're having? Dunno. maybe.
