I've written a php page to display items from a DB, which works fine. But in one instance, in addition to the DB info I wish to display dropdown boxes that impart additional info to be processed by a JS before the add to cart button is clicked. The JS doesn't seem to be working and I'm pretty certain it is JS & PHP interaction issue. When the JS is in an HTML page, it works perfectly. Any ideas of what I need to do to get these to work together?

Here is a short version of the code:
// In the head: <script type="text/javascript">the javascript that executes with onchange, onclick and onsubmits below</script>

//Now for the php & JS issues
if ($mono == "Y") {

echo"<form action=\"https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr\" method=\"post\" 
onsubmit=\"this.target = 'paypal'; return ReadForm(this, true);\">

    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"cmd\" value=\"_cart\">
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"add\" value=\"1\">
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"business\" value=\"$PPEMAIL\">
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"item_name\" value=\"\">
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"amount\" value=\"\">
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"currency_code\" value=\"USD\">
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"baseamt\" value=\"$P\" >
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"basedes\" value=\"$T\">
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"baseon0\" value=\"Color\">
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"baseos0\" value=\"\">
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"baseon1\" value=\"Size\">
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"baseos1\" value=\"\" >
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"baseitn\" value=\"\" >
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"on0\" value=\"\" >
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"os0\" value=\"\" >
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"on1\" value=\"\" >
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"os1\" value=\"\" >
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"item_number\" value=\"$I\" >

          Monogram Font:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 
          <select name=\"mono-font\">
            <option value=\"\" selected>Select Font</option>
            <option value=\"arial\">Arial</option>
            <option value=\"verdana\">Verdana</option>
          Embroidery Color:&nbsp; </font> 
          <select name=\"select\">
            <option value=\"\" selected>Select Color</option>
            <option value=\"E-blue\">blue</option>
            <option value=\"E-red\">red</option>
      <td width=\"23%\">
        <input type=\"image\" src=\"https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/x-click-but22.gif\" name=\"submit\" alt=\"cart add\" > <br>
        <input type    = \"button\" 
       value   = \"Reset\" name=\"button\"
       onClick = \"this.form.reset();\"  name=\"button\" >

I have already tried one approach that converts the JS events in the PHP to PHP variables & concatenates them so PHP inserts the JS code, but that didn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

i think you have some errors in your JS file(code)... try to paste those errors here... by seeing error in "Java console" of your browser

Thank you fo the reply. I'm sorry I didn't see your response earlier(been sick), and have deconstructed that page, going to use PHP only. The problem seemed to come from JS trying to modify some php variables ($P and $T.) Thank you again for trying!!
