getElementById with ie6

I want to complete a <div id="menu"> tag with an external  javascript menu.js, It is okay with Firefox and Opera but not with ie (6).
Process:
1- getElementById("menu") (normally it works fine on ie6 also)
2- create a content with div, h3, ul/li tags:
element_menu1.appendChild(element_menu1_h3);
element_menu1.appendChild(element_menu1_ul);
menu.appendChild(element_menu1)
element_menu2.appendChild(element_menu2_h3);
element_menu2.appendChild(element_menu2_ul);
menu.appendChild(element_menu2)

3- call it in xhtml file:
            <div id="menu">
            </div>
            <script type="text/javascript" src="../js/menu.js"></script>

In parallel, there is a <link> toward a .css file, with style defined for id menu, h3, ul tags.
With Opera and Firefox, the generated menu fits my css content.
But with ie6, the design is the default design on ie. Just the position of the div is okay, but borders, colors, icons for list, etc are missing.

javascript code:

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What happens when someone visits your site without JavaScript enabled? (That includes search engines.)

IE doesn't fully support setAttribute(). For example, change

element_menu1.setAttribute("class", "element_menu");

to

element_menu1.className = "element_menu";

version 6 of IE won't support the menu code you are using.  If you want that compatibility, try a simple getElementById('name')  access method for the elements, without the extra code, that will work in IE6.

Thanks Kravimir: replacing element_menu1.setAttribute("class", "element_menu");
by
element_menu1.className = "element_menu"; perfectly works, and on top of that works with Opera and Firefox.
I tested prohibiting javascript and my menu and footer desappear. I accept it because who desable javascript?? But for searching engine it bothers me. If I decide to make my website visible for google (adding metadata), will it support Javascript (will it see the links bettween pages) or not?

I, for one, use Firefox's NoScript extension (http://noscript.net/) which blocks JavaScript (which I write scripts in on a regular basis) and Flash except for domains that I specifically allow. It really annoys me if I have to enable them just to access the navigation.

If the links are generated with JavaScript, then search engines won't see them.
