I think that you are mixing levels. You want that the client go to a page according to a selection on the client. But you are including ASP code in that client part. Try:

<select name="Alphabet" OnChange='Location.href="xxx.htms?Alphabet="+this.options[this.options.SelectedIndex].value'">

All JavaScript in the client. I am constructing a string from "xxx.htms?Alphabet=" and the selected option and assigning it to location.href.
