    because you are using anchor elements to envoke the script, after the script is done executing the anchor reloads the page. Unless there is a default anchor action when JS is disabled, do not use anchors for script envocation. Any element can have onclick, otherwise make sure that your event handling function returns false so that the default action is interrupted
