<INPUT type='checkbox' id=checkbox1 name=checkbox1 checked disabled>No

Does Netscape make the thing invisible if it is disabled?

You could easily do that with SSI.  If the browser is NS, then it will display different code for the browser.

This is code that people need to cut from their browser. So it needs to have it displayed like this....for some reason I can never get a textarea to show in Netscape...what's up?

Do you use this:

<TEXTAREA ROWS=10 COLS=10>Stuff in textarea</TEXTAREA>


You MUST include the COLS and ROWS in a text area.  Also, you MUST close the textarea with the </TEXTAREA> tag..

I trust you answer is right but I have that information already in my code..

THAT is VERY weird... I just went to a site with Netscape that has a text area.  Worked fine.  I viewd the source, COPIES DIRECTLY from the Source to a file.  Open that file in Netscape and the TEXTAREA was gone.... VERY weird...

I see your point Mike

Are your <textarea> and <input> tags enclosed within a <form> tag?  I have (frequently) found that if I forget that, NS doesn't show <input> tags.

NO they are not in a form...I will try it...

brigmarCommented:
I'm confident that the omission of the <form></form> tags is your problem. Netscape is tres fussy on that..

(... and I'd have gotten away with it if it wasnt for that pesky TTom ) *grin*

TTom is right.  The <form> tag is a requirement for your textarea to work
