I need to be able to hide and make visible comboboxes found on a web
page displayed in an IFrame from the parent.  The web page is part of
the same web site so security issues shouldn't be a problem.  Knowing

Iframe so that I can make a control/element visible or hidden via its
style.visibility attribute?

Ex of what I am doing that seems to be failing.  Viewer is the name of
the Iframe.

				var oCtrl =
				if (oCtrl != null)
					oCtrl.style.visibility =
