IFrame URL variable (not being passed through javascript)

I have a piece of script that passes variables to an iframe.

But it seems it is only passing the first variable ( user_id ) and the others are being ignored.

It loads the user_id and then just ignores width, cid, ord etc

Any ideas why?
<!-- Get MINI SHOP-->
<script src="http://www.mydomain.com/jquery.js"></script>
<span id="205" class="user_id"></span>
<span id="900" class="height"></span>
<span id="900" class="width"></span>
<span id="0" class="cid"></span>
<span id="0" class="ord"></span>
<script src="http://www.mydomain.com/widget.js"></script>
<div id="shop"></div>
<!-- END MINI SHOP-->
 
 
 
 
 
 
JS Code that opens the iframe
 
// JavaScript Document
 
$(document).ready(function(){
 
	var user_id = $(".user_id").attr("id");
	var width = $(".width").attr("id");
	var cid = $(".cid").attr("id");
	var ord = $(".ord").attr("id");
	var qty = $(".qty").attr("id");
	var height = $(".height").attr("id");
		
 
 
	var htmlStr = '<iframe src=http://www.mydomain.com/mini_shop.php?user_id='+user_id+'&width='+width+'&cid='+cid+'&ord='+ord+'" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" height="'+height+'" width="'+width+'"></iframe>';
	
	$("#shop").html(htmlStr);
 
});

A couple questions:

In the generated DOM source, are all the GET variables being passed to the iframe url? (src=http://www.mydomain.com/mini_shop.php?user_id=blah&width=blah&cid=blah&ord=blah)

If yes, what PHP are you using to parse the variables?
If no, there may be something wrong with your <input> fields or jQuery code (the jQuery looks OK though)

And, finally, as a sot in the dark, your HTML is invalid. Try this:
//CHANGE
	var htmlStr = '<iframe src=http://www.mydomain.com/mini_shop.php?user_id='+user_id+'&width='+width+'&cid='+cid+'&ord='+ord+'" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" height="'+height+'" width="'+width+'"></iframe>';
 
//TO
	var htmlStr = '<iframe src="http://www.mydomain.com/mini_shop.php?user_id='+user_id+'&width='+width+'&cid='+cid+'&ord='+ord+'" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" height="'+height+'" width="'+width+'"></iframe>';
 
// note missing double quote in src attribute
