Please note the alert()'s are just to make sure that it's looking at the correct element. I'm completely out of ideas here and really appreciate any help!
var arr = new Object();
arr = document.testing.pagejump.selectedIndex;
alert("The selected value is : " + document.testing.pagejump[arr].value);
var lll = new Object();
lll = document.testing.pagejump[arr].value;
