Populating dropdown box on pageload

I have attached the javascript code,I am calling reqLocInit() method in an xsl file on body load as
<body onload="profile_init();reqLocInit()" onkeydown="profile_keydown(event)" onunload="profile_unload()" style="visibility:hidden">
The thing is i need to insert html code <form action="" method="post">
<b>Requesting Locations:</b>
<select name="reqLoc" disabled="true">
</select>
<br />
</form>
</p>
<!--
<iframe id="hiddenFrame" frameborder="0" style="position:absolute;left:0;top:0;height:100%;width:100%;visibility:hidden;border:0px;" src="../blank.htm"></iframe>
-->
<iframe id="hiddenFrame" frameborder="0" style="position:absolute;left:0;top:450;height:100%;width:100%;border:0px;" src="../blank.htm"></iframe>
 
in to this xsl,I checked on internet that this code should be included with in body but i have to insert somewhere after this
<tr>
                  <td class="fieldlabel" elementType="field">
                        <label for="RQH_REQ_LOCATION">
                        <xsl:call-template name="doThatLangThing">
                              <xsl:with-param name="langVar">RQH-REQ-LOCATION</xsl:with-param>
                        </xsl:call-template>
                        </label>
                  </td>
which is AFTER the body tag completes
the body tags starts and ends as
<body onload="profile_init();reqLocInit()" onkeydown="profile_keydown(event)" onunload="profile_unload()" style="visibility:hidden">
                        <div id="profileTabGroup" class="hiddenTabGroup">
                              <ul>
                                    <li id="profileTab">
                                          <button onclick="mainWnd.sipObj.showTabGroup('profile', workWnd)"
                                                      onmouseover="changeObjClass(this,'over');"
                                                      onmouseout="restoreObjClass(this);">
                                                <xsl:call-template name="doThatLangThing">
                                                      <xsl:with-param name="langVar">profile</xsl:with-param>
                                                </xsl:call-template>
                                          </button>
                                    </li>
<div class="contentArea">
                        <!-- Profile ***************************************************************************************** -->
                              <div id="profile" style="display:none">
                                                                        <form name="profiler" id="profiler" onsubmit="return false;">
                                          <table align="left" border="0" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2">
                                                <xsl:call-template name="profileFields"/>
                                                
                                                                 </table>
                                                                        <input name="_itemGroup" type="hidden">
                                                <xsl:attribute name="value"><xsl:value-of select="DefaultsScreen/ItemGroup/ID"/></xsl:attribute>
                                          </input>
                                          <input name="_vendorGroup" type="hidden">
                                                <xsl:attribute name="value"><xsl:value-of select="DefaultsScreen/VendorGroup/ID"/></xsl:attribute>
                                          </input>
                                          <input name="_procureGroup" type="hidden">
                                                <xsl:attribute name="value"><xsl:value-of select="DefaultsScreen/ProcureGroup/ID"/></xsl:attribute>
                                          </input>
                                    </form>
                              </div>
</tr>
                                          </table>
                                    </form>
                              </div>
                        </div>
                  </body>
            </html>
      </xsl:template>
How do i do this?
r.js file 
 
var reqLocProdLine = "LOGAN";
var reqLocFile = "WFUSERCAT";
 
var workCat = "Req Loc";
 
 
 
function reqLocInit() {
 
	
 
	alert(mainWnd.user.requester);
		
		//Now get the WF USER CATEGORY Table for processing
		REQLOC = new Array();
		var dmeObject = new DMEObject(reqLocProdLine, reqLocFile);
		//Need to change the name of the servlet to include the .exe as otherwise apache misses the reference
		dmeObject.progName="/cgi-lawson/dme.exe";
		dmeObject.field="Id;Task;Work-category;Work-cat-value";
		dmeObject.out="JAVASCRIPT";
		dmeObject.max="1000";
		dmeObject.select="Id=" + mainWnd.user.requester + "&Work-category=Req Loc";
 
		dmeObject.func="setReqLocList()";
		DME(dmeObject,"REQLOCHID");
		
	}
function setReqLocList() {
		
		REQLOC = window.REQLOCHID.record
 
		for (var i=0; i<REQLOC.length; i++) {
			var newOption=document.createElement('option');
			newOption.text=REQLOC[i].Work_cat_value
			var reqLocSelect=document.getElementById("RQH_REQ_LOCATION");
			try
			{
				reqLocSelect.add(newOption,null); // standards compliant
			}
			catch(ex)
			{
				reqLocSelect.add(newOption); // IE only
			}
		}
		document.getElementById("RQH_REQ_LOCATION").disabled = false;
}

Open in new window

You CANNOT insert part of a table AFTER the body tag completes.  It MUST be inserted into the BODY to make valid HTML.  You will either have to not close out the BODY and HTML before you insert the table, or else put the table, starting and ending with the <TABLE>  and </TABLE> tags, into the XSL code.
