The culprit seems to be the innerHTML of the change_price function.  I
have no explanation, but without this, the delivery parameter is sent.

This function is logically not changing anything anyway (setting the
HTML to the same as what it already is), but perhaps your example
isn't making use of a particular scenario.

I guess you actually only want to change the value of the hidden form
field anyway, innerHTML isn't appropriate, just grab a reference to
the input element and set it's value attribute.
