Hello, can someone help me to figure out how to add the value of a set of radio buttons in a form to a mailto button onclick?  It works if I try a textbox value in the same form, but passes "UNDEFINED" when I try to pass the radio button value.

<form class="formular" id="DonateForm" name="DonateForm" method="post" action="GCP21Reg.asp">
	<table style="width: 100%;">
			<td class="FormSectionRows" colspan="2">
            <input type="radio" id="S1" name="AbsCat" value="S1" />S1 Biodiversity and Genetic Resources<br/>
            <input type="radio" id="S2" name="AbsCat" value="S2" />S2 Climate and Social Changes Impacting Cassava<br/>
            <input type="radio" id="S3" name="AbsCat" value="S3" />S3 Genomics and Gene Discovery Platforms<br/> 
            <input type="radio" id="S4" name="AbsCat" value="S4" />S4 Agronomy (Cassava Field Production)<br/>
            <input type="radio" id="S5" name="AbsCat" value="S5" />S5 CBSD and CMD and CBB<br/>
