    You will have to hide the form elements when your dhtml drop-down is
dropped down. In IE 4+, you can simply change the CSS visibility property
for the affected form elements from "visible" to "hidden". But for Netscape
4.x you have to place the entire form within its own layer and then swap
that layer's visibility property -- not a pretty prospect.
