Why does this select not work?

Head out to http://brucegust.com/portfolio/verizon/test_code.php. When you choose the project under "project type," I've got some Javascript that's grabbing some content and auto populating the description, requirements and determination field. Thing is, it's not working and I don't know why.

The select statement is "compliance_id." I'm sending that up to my "Family()" function and...

Where am I blowing it?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

this is not working as you have a huge bunch of syntax errors and hence the script is incomplete and not working.
A multiline javascript string has to have a Space + Backslash at the end of the line, so that the JavaScript engine knows that the string continues the next line.
Second you have to escape quotes with \"

Sample part of your script should then look like;
function Family() {
var c_description = new Array();
var c_requirements = new Array();
var c_determination = new Array();c_description[1]="Project A - default";c_requirements[1]="default";c_determination[1]="default";
    c_description[2]="Network driven micro-coverage only to public.  No back-up generator or ground presence.";
    c_requirements[2]="For this project type to obtain a waiver of due diligence all 4 of the following requirements must be met:\

(1) The Landlord offers standard environmental contractual protections in the lease \
(2) The building is of recent construction post-1980 \
(3) The project DOES NOT require roofing material disturbance or core drilling \
(4) The project DOES NOT require flooring material disturbance \

 If you answer \"No\" to any of the 4 requirements, you must select \"No\" in the drop down box. ";

BTW: using Chrome and the integrated dev tools indicate the script error and the location of the error

Thanks, Rainer! Using your counsel, I found a bunch of errors that I'm slowly digging my way out of.

I am making progress, though! Got another question at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/PHP/Q_28678710.html if you want to weigh in.
