    I am currently using the form function with inputs. I want to hide some of these inputs. I can successfully hide these inputs in IE, but not in netscape.

    I covered up the input with a layer in netscape, but my script needs to read the input function and doesnt read it when the layer is above it.

    <input type="checkbox" name="engine" border="0" CHECKED style="visibility:hidden>
    This works in IE not netscape.

    I worked with a layer and the code looks like this:

    .myDiv {visibility: visible; position: relative; display: none;}

    <div class="myDiv">
    <input type="checkbox" name="engine" border="0" CHECKED style="visibility:hidden">

    Can anyone help me with hiding the input boxes but still be read in the form function. The input will be on a constant checked feature.

    The script I'm running is also looking for the string 'checkbox'. This does not seem to be a sytax error, from the research I've done, it seems that this is a very big problem with netscape 4.7.

    I was wondering if someone had found a fix for my specific problem.
    If anyone can help me shed light on this subject of how to hide the inputs in netscape but still be read by the form function.

    Well.. the problem lays within the fact that NS4.x series is incompatable with the internet :x Do you really need it to be compatable with NS 4.7? If not I'd just make sure it renders properly in Opera/Moz/NS7. Those (generally) are far more important than a dead browser. Although there might be some reason you need to make it compatable.. .which would suck.

    visibility:hidden is not a recognized Netscape property. If you want a hidden form field, however, why not just use [minicode]<INPUT TYPE="hidden" name="field name" value="value">[/minicode]? That will work in any browser. You can even edit it with Javascript if you want to.
