    Multiple argument call problem

    Hi, I'm trying to pass the value of a radio button to a function when a textarea detects a keypress event. I can't figure out why this error is happening though...
    Code:
    Error: SyntaxError: missing ) after argument list
    Line: 1, Column: 29
    Source Code:
    getMoreInfoResults(this.value; document.question_form.vote.value;)
    HTML Code:
    <div id="pollElement">
    <h3>Do you like money?</h3>
    <form name="question_form">
    	<input type="radio" name="vote" value="1" onclick="getVote(this.value)" />Yes<br />
    	<input type="radio" name="vote" value="2" onclick="getVote(this.value)" />No<br />
    	<h3>Why?</h3>
    	<textarea rows="3" name="moreInfo" onkeyup="getMoreInfoResults(this.value; document.question_form.vote.value;)" /></textarea><br />
    	<input type="submit" value="Submit" />
    	<div id="otherAnswers">You can optionally type an answer.</div>
    </form>
    </div>
    Code:
    function getMoreInfoResults(input, int) {
    
    if (window.XMLHttpRequest)
      { // code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
      xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
      } else { // code for IE6, IE5
      xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
      }
    
    xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=function() {
    
    if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status==200) {
      document.getElementById("otherAnswers").innerHTML=xmlhttp.responseText;
    }
    
    }
    
    xmlhttp.open("GET","phpPoll/phpPoll_userDefined/functions/getMoreInfoResults.php?moreInfo="+input,true);
    xmlhttp.open("GET","phpPoll/phpPoll_userDefined/functions/getMoreInfoResults.php?vote="+int,true);
    
    xmlhttp.send();
    
    }
    Does anyone know why this is happening?
    Thanks

    getMoreInfoResults(this.value; document.question_form.vote.value
    arguments should be comma separated, not semicolon.

    try changing it to

    getMoreInfoResults(this.value, document.question_form.vote.value)

    what those semicolons are doing in firing method? it should be colon, and just one, functionName(attr1, attr2)
