I recieved an answer on how to get some particular ajax to work and part of the solution was these lines:

ndxcar1 = document.forms.formx.one.selectedIndex;
car1 = document.forms.formx.one.options[ndxcar1].value;

what the heck does "formx" refer to?

Here is the code in context:

in that reply, formx is the "name" of your form.

<form action="" method="" name="formx">
