I'm a total non-programmer, so please bear with me.  This is an easy score for you.

I can hack html to make flat pages, but interactivity eludes me so far.

Here's what I want to do:

I have a form, and within the form I have 2 radio buttons.

If radio button 1 is selected (as default) then a text box should not be visible.
if radio button 2 is selected, a text box should appear right next to the check box.

Here's the section of my ugly code so far:

 <tr>
   <td height="32" class="xl24" style="height: 100%; border-top-style: none; border-top-width: medium" width="100%">
      <font face="Verdana">How should we reach you?
            <input type="radio" name="ContactBy" value="Email" checked>Email&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
            <input type="radio" name="ContactBy" value="Phone" onclick="if (this.checked) {Trouble.hidephone.display='true'} else {Trouble.hidephone.display='false'}">Phone&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
     
     <script>
     <div name="hidephone" id="hidephone">
      #</font> <input type="text" name="Phone" size="20"><font face="Verdana" size="1"><font class="font5"></font></font>
            </div>
     </script>
 </td>
</tr>

Great!

This is functional, but the textbox appears on the next line instead of just to the right of the radiobox.

Can you tune that part of it?

I split the points, but I think you'll both find the amount to be fair.

The second answer worked exactly as I wanted.

Thanks guys.
