Problem related to browsers and javascript

I am using this code to read the option values from a select option. I am getting the reference of that select option in arg1. Its working fine with mozilla firefox but not with Internet Explorer. It gives the lenth but failing to read the arguments(Shown in bold). It gives the alert Internet Explorer 4 for IE and Netscape 5 for Mozilla firefox for the alert in line 4.

function custom(arg,arg1)
if (arg == "custom")

var brow=((navigator.appName) + (parseInt(navigator.appVersion)));
alert("Browser" + brow);
var length = arg1.options.length;
alert("length" + length);
var str1 = "";

for(var i = 1;i < length-1; i++ )
str1 = str1 + arg1.options[i].value + ";" ;

var url = "/futopt/globalrec-ajaysoni/webapp/jsp/welcome.jsp";
url = url + "?str=" + str1;,'welcome','width=300,height=200');

Can any rancher help me out of this. Please Suggest as soon as possible how I can read the values of the select option for IE. I shall be thankful.

Please take care to choose the correct forum for posting. This forum is for questions on JSP so this post has been moved to the Javascript forum.

And what does the call to this function custom(arg,arg1) look like?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
