Getting the SelectedIndex of a IEWC:TABSTRIP in client Javascript?

I know I'm sort of on the right track, but I just can't quite seems to get there.  I would like to find the current value of the SelectedIndex of an IEWC:TABSTRIP control.  Let's say I have something like the following:
<IEWC:TABSTRIP ID="tsTabs" RUNAT="server" TARGETID="mpTabs">
      <IEWC:TAB TEXT="Tab 1" ID="tab1" TARGETID="pv1"></IEWC:TAB>
      <IEWC:TAB TEXT="Tab 2" ID="tab2" TARGETID="pv2"></IEWC:TAB>
      <IEWC:TAB TEXT="Tab 3" ID="tab3" TARGETID="pv3"></IEWC:TAB>
</IEWC:TABSTRIP>
<IEWC:MULTIPAGE ID="mpTabs" RUNAT="server">
      <IEWC:PAGEVIEW ID="pv1" ALIGN="center">
      </IEWC:PAGEVIEW>
      <IEWC:PAGEVIEW ID="pv2" ALIGN="center">
      </IEWC:PAGEVIEW>
      <IEWC:PAGEVIEW ID="pv3" ALIGN="center">
      </IEWC:PAGEVIEW>
</IEWC:MULTIPAGE>

In client Javascript I would like to get which tab is the current tab?  I figured something like the following would work...I was wrong.
alert(document.Form1.elements("tsSvcs").SelectedIndex);
alert(document.Form1.elements("mpTabs").SelectedIndex);

Let's not concern ourself with why I'm doing this, or why aren't I doing this in server code.  Let's just solve the problem at hand.  If it's at all possible?

Thanks
