[thelist] Inserting Form Fields with JS in Netscape 6+

(I could have sworn I'd seen a thread on this recently, but couldn't find it in the archives)

Along with the modal dialog issue on IE5.2 on the Mac, the same application (which was created specifically for IE 5.5 on Windows) also needs to run on Netscape 6 in both Windows and the Mac.

We have a section where we need to add form fields to a form dynamically with JavaScript.  In IE, this works fine, but in Netscape 6+ (we've tried it in 6.0, 6.1, 6.2, and 7) when you submit the form, the dynamically added fields don't get submitted.

We've tried several methods of adding the form elements, from writing the HTML (innerHTML, etc.) to using createElement, and nothing as worked.

Is this not possible in Netscape 6+?

Unlike the modal dialog issue (which we can workaround), this is a show-stopping issue for this app.
