Hi there.

I am a newbie in Javascript. Here is a little code that I want to use on my website (I've copied it from somewhere on internet). It adds the values of checkboxes and display them. It works fine in almost all browsers except IE7/8 (I've checked it is not working specifically in IE8). The error is: invalid argument on line 37 Char 1. Can anybody help me please?

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html lang="en">
<fieldset id="checkboxes">
<input type="checkbox" value="1">
<input type="checkbox" value="2">
<input type="checkbox" value="4">
<input type="checkbox" value="8">
<input type="checkbox" value="16">
<input type="checkbox" value="32">

<p>The total is: <span id="total"> </span></p>

<script type="text/javascript">

var checkboxes = document.getElementById("checkboxes").getElementsByTagName("input");
for(var i = 0; i < checkboxes.length; i++)
checkboxes[i].onclick = tally;

function tally()
var total = 0;
for(var i = 0; i < checkboxes.length; i++)

total += parseInt(checkboxes[i].value);

document.getElementById("total").replaceChild( document.createTextNode(total), document.getElementById("total").firstChild);
