    Cool dropdown box issue

    Below, is a code I've been working on where the user searches and selects an item in the drop-down list, and it'll automatically open that page in a new window. It doesn't seem to work at all!
    Can anybody correct this?

    Here's the code:

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-gb">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
    <title>Direct access</title>
    <body OnLoad=" document.form.functioninput.focus()" link="#000000" vlink="#000000" alink="#808080" style="font-family: Arial; color: #000000; font-size: 10pt" bgcolor="#CCCCCC" topmargin="5" leftmargin="5" rightmargin="5" bottommargin="5">
    <!-- Security -->
    <body oncontextmenu="return false;">
    <table border="0" width="100%" cellpadding="11">
    		<td valign="top">
    		<script type="text/javascript">
    // this is the javascript array holding the function list
    // array of arrays
    var functionList = [
        [ "name1", "http://url1" ],
        [ "name2", "http://url2" ],
    // This is the function that refreshes the list after a keypress.
    // The maximum number to show can be limited to improve performance with
    // huge lists (1000s of entries).
    // The function clears the list, and then does a linear search through the
    // globally defined array and adds the matches back to the list.
    function handleKeyUp(maxNumToShow)
    	selectObj = document.forms[0].functionselect;
    	textObj = document.forms[0].functioninput;
    	if(document.forms[0].functionradio[1].checked == true)
    		strText = "^"+textObj.value;
    		strText = textObj.value;
    	var numShown;
    	re = new RegExp(strText,"gi");
    	selectObj = document.forms[0].functionselect;
        numShown = 0;
        for(i = 0; i < functionList.length; i++)
            var listEntry = functionList[i];
            // for first version above, array of arrays:
            if ( listEntry[0].search(re) != -1)
                selectObj[numShown++] = new Option( listEntry[0], listEntry[1] );
            // for second version above, array of objects:
            if ( listEntry.name.search(re) != -1)
                selectObj[numShown++] = new Option(listEntry.name, listEntry.url );
    		if(numShown == maxNumToShow)
    	if(selectObj.length == 1)
    		selectObj.options[0].selected = true;
    function ClearOptionsFast(id)
    	var selectObj = document.getElementById(id);
    	var selectParentNode = selectObj.parentNode;
    	var newSelectObj = selectObj.cloneNode(false); // Make a shallow copy
    	selectParentNode.replaceChild(newSelectObj, selectObj);
    	return newSelectObj;
    // this function gets the selected value and loads the appropriate
    // php reference page in the display frame
    // it can be modified to perform whatever action is needed, or nothing
    function handleSelectClick()
