That seems to have been a pretty good guess. But if they were really gone from the document when their parent element is set to display:none, then it would seem like I should get an error when I try to access them, which I don't. But it actually worked, although I still don't like the way that Netscape handles things. Since I wanted to have the form totally "disappear" or "collapse," block didn't work so well, because it took up space even when it was hidden. I had to have it inline while I set the checked properties, then set it to display:none when done.

But its only a guess. When you set the display to none, maybe it is removing the element entirely from the document. Try making it hidden, but leave the display as block or inline.
