Worth reading

Just right

Just right

It was worth reading because I didn't know that a <span style="position: absolute"> gets interpreted as a layer by Netscape.

You should really have mentioned however that this is restricted in Netscape (at least when I tried it in 4.5/win32). If you want to format the form at all (e.g. with a table) the form fields end up overwriting each other because the form is in a floating layer. If you try fixing the layer by embedding it in an ilayer, for some reason the text edits don't appear. Bah.

In short, this example is a nice demonstration of what you can do, but it falls short of being a real world, cross browser method of implementing interactive forms. (Haven't found one yet! I'll let you know if I do!)
