Javascript function problem

I have a page with two identical JS functions, go1() and go2(). The first one works correctly, but the second does not display the corresponding dropdown. I can't see what could be causing this. Could somebody let me know if they see the problem?

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function go1(){
if (document.selecter1.select2.options[document.selecter1.select2.selectedIndex].value != "none") {
location = document.selecter1.select2.options[document.selecter1.select2.selectedIndex].value
             }
     }
</script>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function go2(){
if (document.selecter3.select4.options[document.selecter3.select4.selectedIndex].value != "none") {
location = document.selecter3.select4.options[document.selecter3.select4.selectedIndex].value
             }
     }
</script>
</head>
<body>
<p>&nbsp;<p>&nbsp;<p>&nbsp;
<center><H1><font face="Arial, Helvetica">Page Name/font></H1></center><p>
<p><p><p>
<table align=center width="15%" border=0>
  <tr>
    <td>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
document.write('<form name="selecter1"><select name="select2"');
document.write('<option value=none>--Select High Level View--');
document.write('<option value=filename.html>Name of Page');
document.write('</select>');
document.write('<input type=button value=Go onclick=go1()>');
document.write('</form>');
// end hiding contents -->
</script>
    </td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
document.write('<form name="selecter3"><select name="select4"');
document.write('<option value=none>--Select Filter--');
document.write('<option value=aip_filename.html>Page Name');
document.write('<input type=button value=Go onclick=go2()>');
'document.write('</form>');
// end hiding contents -->
</script>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
