Hi, this is my first posting here.
I have a question that appears to be very simple but it's driving me crazy.
The following code doesn't work on IE 7.0, it never calls showDocument:

function showDocument(){

<table class="items">
<tr class="item">
<td class="label">Document:</td>
<td class="data">
<select name="file" onchange="showDocument()" id="file" size="1">
#foreach ($f in $files)
<option value="$f" #if ($rec.docID == $f.id) SELECTED #end> $!f.linkname</option>

Any help will be very welcome

Hello, and welcome to WebmasterWorld!

When you post problems here, please post only the relevant portions of your code. That is, please make your code as simple as possible, containing only the elements necessary to reproduce the problem. When I do that this code works fine for me:

<script type=text/javascript> 
function showDocument(){

<select name="file" onchange="showDocument()">
