does nothing. 

On the web page, above, click on any of the phone manufacturer names listed in
"Step #2" about halfway down the page. 

No resulting actions.

(I am really a bit clueless as to java, in general, so much of my report is
given by taking general aim at what I think is the problem. All I really know is
the action I take and the (lack) of results.)

Is this problem with Mozilla's java implementation? Or the Mac's java package?
The OS?

Can it be fixed in Moz? Or is it forever left to Apple to implement java properly?

Please do not report Netscape 6.2 bugs here.

However, confirming using Phoenix 20021207 (CVS) on Linux, JavaScript console:

Error: txtComments is not defined
Source File: http://cellphones.about.com/library/bl_rc.htm
Line: 300

Code shows:

function compile(rcarg) {
	var rcrt = txtComments.value + ","

which is incorrect.

Propose to move to Tech Evangelism.
