Ok, I have a dropdown menu I'm populating with a list of pdf's that are uploaded to a specific directory on my server. See "Past Meetings" on the right. http://mt-spacehosting.com/fisheries/plans/northeast-multispecies/

Using the following code, I am able to populate the list, but due to (I think) the structure of Wordpress, a 404 not found error is generated onClick. Any ideas as to why that is happening? I've searched around on various php boards, but haven't found quite what I'm looking for. Including the document root did not solve the problem.

    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">

    function MM_reloadPage(init) {  //reloads the window if Nav4 resized
      if (init==true) with (navigator) {if ((appName=="Netscape")&&(parseInt(appVersion)==4)) {
        document.MM_pgW=innerWidth; document.MM_pgH=innerHeight; onresize=MM_reloadPage; }}
      else if (innerWidth!=document.MM_pgW || innerHeight!=document.MM_pgH) location.reload();

    function MM_jumpMenuGo(selName,targ,restore){ //v3.0

    <select name="s1" onchange="MM_jumpMenu('pdfwin',this,0)">
