Josh You really want to use the "id" attribute rather than the "name" attribute when referring to things with document.all. Probably the reason why the form is being recognised and the paragraph is not is because forms are reflected in the document.forms collection and paragraphs are not reflected in any collection.

Everything works ok when I do this ... document.all.cutnpaste.style.visibility = "hidden" ... but when I do this ... document.all.clipboard.style.visibility = "hidden" I get an error that "document.all.clipboard.style is null or is not an object." Obviously, this is an IE script. Does anyone know why the second method does not work?
