Matt & Walter,
You are both right... Ajax.Updater is, apparently, trying to update
the <select> AFTER it calls onSuccess and since it is incapable of updating
a <select> it was thereby overwritting my adds... no problem, once I
figured that out, I just added in a <div id='results'> and let the updater
put the json there... it makes it easy to debug and I can update it once I
get this fully working (or leave it in the example I plan on posting
somewhere so the next person doesn't have to go through all this).
Next two things are:
1) clear the selects. $('city').clear() doesnt work nor does
$('city).options.length = 0; Any suggestions on how to go about that?
2) get the event observers to work... neither $('zip').observe('onkeyup',
cities); OR Event.Observe('zip', 'onkeyup', counties); works
