IE and Navigator - different responses to JavaScript

I have an SVG file that creates an image with a bar chart and more. This is
embedded into an HTML file, and displayed in browsers using the Adobe
plug-in. (I use the 'object' tag, but the same problem obtains with the
'embed' tag.) The SVG file creates placeholders for the actual bars - the
only attributes specified for path are id and class. The bars themselves
are created through JavaScript that responds to values entered into an HTML
form.  The JavaScript getsElementById, does some computations based on the
form values, and sets the 'd' attribute through setAttribute.

This works without problem in IE (5.5). It does not work at all in
Navigator (4.73). That's the desktop standard here. Any help in getting
this to work in Navigator would be greatly appreciately.
