.html() in Ajax Works in Firefox, not in IE

I thought all was good until I tested my page in IE.  I am using ajax to build a set of dynamic dependent select boxes.   I have built up a  test case to study the problem.  The ajax is returning the correct data both in Firefox and in IE.  It seems the

$("#Suplft").html(data);

Open in new window


statement does not work in IE.   It clears the options, but doesn't load in the new values.  I have searched the web, but I haven't found the solution.   Here is a link to my test case.  Run it in Firefox and then run it in IE.

Thanks in advance

Your ajax returns this for example

<option value='n 0.0  0.00  Select Support Style'>Select Support Style</option><option value='d  12  395.01  455.01  140_18_12_Deep'>Deep  ............ (18") NSF</option><option value='e  15  440.30  495.30  140_18_18_Extended'>Extended   .....(22") NSF</option>


It's not valid HTML - remove the bolded parts, they don't belong in a select box

That works just fine in IE for me if I use <option>Hello</option> as the contents of support_get.php, so it's likely some malformed HTML content (maybe some PHP errors or warnings) coming back from the page that IE isn't understanding.

Here is  support_get.php

<?php
  include "support_db.php";
  $depth=$_POST["depth"];
  $group=$_POST["group"];
  $result=mysql_query("select Display_Name,Key_3 FROM Products where Pri_Group = '$group' AND Sec_Group='Lft' AND Key_1='$depth' ORDER BY Sort_Index ASC");
  while($Sup_lft=mysql_fetch_array($result)){
echo"<option value='$Sup_lft[Key_3]'>$Sup_lft[Display_Name]</option>";

  }
?>

I left up the alert to show what was being returned.   I don't know how the data is supposed to look like.  I can just see something is coming back.
