[thelist] Javascript - Permission Denied

You know I never knew the proper order of using anchors and querystring
variables in a URL, which comes last? :
page.asp?productauto=3#a919 - or - page.asp#a919?productauto=3 
I ended up doing:
if not request.QueryString("productauto") = "" then
  auto = split(request.QueryString("productauto"),"#")
  SQL = " and productauto=" & auto(0)
end if

Next piece: This javascript helps expand and hide rows in tables, like
expandable sections:
<script language="javascript">
function toggleSub(submenu) {
    if (document.getElementById(submenu).style.display == 'none') {
        document.getElementById(submenu).style.display = 'block'
    } else {
        document.getElementById(submenu).style.display = 'none'
  <tr id="zzz<%= rs("productauto")%>">

Next piece: When the page loads if there is an "productauto" in the
querystring then:
onLoad="toggleSub('zzz" & auto(0) & "')

Moving along, there is a link that moves the element/link up or down in the
order it is displayed on the screen. The page that executes the update query
on the move up/down link just clicked, sends the user back to:

response.redirect("LinkManager.asp?productauto=" &
request.QueryString("productauto") & "#a" &

; which takes us back to the beginning of this email. 

However, in IE, I get a Permission Denied error on line 12, char 5, or:
if (document.getElementById(submenu).style.display == 'none') {

When I try this same code it works in Mozilla 1.0.1.

Is this an IE bug?
