Hi guys

Having a bit if a issue with my form

This is my javascript, the problem is when a user selects a option in the dropdown box, it resets the whole form so they are all blank

How can I keep it from doing this?

PHP Code:
<form method="post" action="<?php print $_SELF?>">
<input type="hidden" name="op" value="contact">

<TABLE width="100%">
<td width="100%">
<font size="3" face="century gothic">
<font face="century gothic" size="4">Catergory:</TD><TD>

$quer2=mysql_query("SELECT DISTINCT category,cat_id FROM category order by category"); 
echo "<select name='category'>
<option value=''>------------------------ Please select a category ---------------------------</option>";
while($noticia2 = mysql_fetch_array($quer2)) { 
if($noticia2['cat_id']==@$cat){echo "<option selected value='$noticia2[cat_id]'>$noticia2[category]</option>"."<BR>";}
else{echo  "<option value='$noticia2[cat_id]'>$noticia2[category]</option>";}


</TD><td valign="top"><img src="required.gif"></td></TR>
<TR><TD><font face="century gothic" size="4">Location:</TD><TD>

@$cat=$_GET['location']; // Use this line or below line if register_global is off
//@$cat=$HTTP_GET_VARS['location']; // Use this line or above line if register_global is off
