Javascript Alert does not work

What is wrong with the alert below? If I replace the alert with just the text "TEST" - it works.
With 'document.getElementById("sort-order").value' the alert doesn't even pop up.
<form id="filter-sort-block" action="http://www.artechchurchinteriors.com/portfolio/" method="get" class="no_js">
	<fieldset id="sort">
		<select name="order" id='sort-order'>
			<option value='name' selected="selected" >Alphabetical</option>				
		</select>
		<input type="submit" value="Sort" class="submit" />
	</fieldset>
			
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
	alert("document.getElementById("sort-order").value");
</script>

</form>

double quotes inside double quotes, you need to escape them :
alert("document.getElementById(\"sort-order\").value");

Open in new window


But it seems you want to achieve this :
alert(document.getElementById("sort-order").value);

Open in new window
