Not sure what you may have done wrong, but I copied this code into a new document, and it worked perfectly.

You should probably try again.

Are you using some other browser besides IE?  I tested the code carefully.  I'm sure it works, maybe your problem lies in a disabled option.  If your using IE, set the option to run Javascript.

I was refering to a browser like Opera, Amaya or any other.

Here's a list of some of the one's out there: (this covers several platforms)

I don't know else to say.  That code works as far as I know your problem lies else where.
