CRM 2011 Default Lookup Values Not Connecting

I have created some javascript code to write default values to two lookups.  The correct values appear in the lookup field but do not bind to the lookup.  

The values are in the center of the lookup field and stop the form from being saved until the lookup is correctly populated using the spyglass.  

See the examples below.  The first image shows the lookups populated by JavaScript.  The second shows the lookups populated by selecting from the lookup icon.

Lookups  populated by using lookup search icon
I will include the javascript below

The javascript that I have been using is below.  I have tried a number of variations but all produce the behavior listed above.

function FreightName() {
    var lookupValue = new Array();
    lookupValue[0] = new Object();
    lookupValue[0].id = "16F711C2-5C9C-E411-8DC3-005056897092";   // Guid Of That Look Up
    lookupValue[0].name = "Collect";                              // Name  Of That Look Up
    lookupValue[0].entityType = "csc_freightterm";                  // Entity Name Of That Look Up
    Xrm.Page.getAttribute("csc_freightterm").setValue(lookupValue);

}

function ShipName() {
    var lookupValue = new Array();
    lookupValue[0] = new Object();
    lookupValue[0].id = "1EF711C2-5C9C-E411-8DC3-005056897092";  // Guid Of That Look Up
    lookupValue[0].name = "Standard Priority";                   // Name  Of That Look Up
    lookupValue[0].entityType = "csc_shipmentpriority";                  // Entity Name Of That Look Up
    Xrm.Page.getAttribute("csc_shipmentpriority").setValue(lookupValue);
}

I am trying another function that I have used before.  I am still getting the indented value in the lookup (shown above)

function FreightName()
{
//Create an array to set as the DataValue for the lookup control.
var lookupData = new Array();
//Create an Object add to the array.
var lookupItem= new Object();
//Set the id, typename, and name properties to the object.
lookupItem.id = '{16F711C2-5C9C-E411-8DC3-005056897092}';
lookupItem.typename = 'csc_lookup';
lookupItem.name = 'Collect';
// Add the object to the array.
lookupData[0] = lookupItem;
// Set the value of the lookup field to the value of the array.
Xrm.Page.getAttribute("csc_freightterm").setValue(lookupData);

}

I resolved this myself.  The solution is below:

function FreightName()
{
//Create an array to set as the DataValue for the lookup control.
var lookupData = new Array();
//Create an Object add to the array.
var lookupItem= new Object();
//Set the id, typename, and name properties to the object.
lookupItem.id = '{16F711C2-5C9C-E411-8DC3-005056897092}';
lookupItem.typename = 'csc_lookupitem';
lookupItem.name = 'Collect';
// Add the object to the array.
lookupData[0] = lookupItem;
// Set the value of the lookup field to the value of the array.
Xrm.Page.getAttribute("csc_freightterm").setValue(lookupData);

}
