Here is my HTML SELECT tag.
<select class="validate['required'] text-input" id='plyrstate' name='plyrstate'>
<option ></option>

Using mootools ajax request, I am using the following line to set the response to the above id 'plyrstate'.

$('plyrcity').set('html', response);

This works fine in FF and CHROME. But IE always displays empty drop down. I alerted the response in IE, it has the values though.

To fix this I used div tag around the select and tried to set the response on the div. It then displayed the value, but I got in to another issue with getboundclientrect().

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have Friday deadline to fix this issue.
