in onchange what indexOf('Tue') and indexOf('Wed') means?
I think in indexOf it should be the id of the select box...

I placed a 1 in textarea1 and 2 in textarea2

works
but when I
use select1, textarea2 gets open if I start at tue and go to wed

select1 should only open textarea1
and
select2 should only open textarea2
