Can anyone please tell me why this code block,
     <script type="text/javascript">
         var i=0
         for (i=0;i<=10;i++)
         {
            document.write("The number is " + i)
           document.write("<br />")
         }
     </script>
specifically the line "for(i=0;i<=10;i++) works with no problem while this code block,
    <SCRIPT language="Javascript">
    <!--
    function addtocombo()
        {
          var i = 0
          var selectedItem
          var selectedText
          var selectedValue
          var newoption1
          var x = 0
          var listLength=document.userslist.menuitems.length
                
          For (x=0; x<listLength; x++)
          {
              if (userslist.menuitems.options(x).selected == 1)
              {
                  selectedItem = document.userslist.menuitems.selectedIndex;
                  selectedText = document.userslist.menuitems.options[x].text;
                  selectedValue = document.userslist.menuitems.options[x].value;
                  newoption1 = new Option(selectedText, selectedValue, false, false);
                  document.userslist.selitems.options[i] = newoption1;
                  i = i + 1
              }
          }
    }

specifically the line "For (x=0; x<listLength; x++)" causes the following error during page load.

nevermind.  It's alsways right in front of you.  I keep forgetting how picky Javascript is.  It doesnt like the keyword For to be capitalized.
