Pop up text box: hidden problem

Hi Experts,
On a field of "Faculty" there are choices of "Professor, Lecturer, Staff, Other". "Faculty" is a dialog list field. It is required that an editable input text box be popped up only when "Other" is chosen. In other words, no input boxes be popped up if any one of "Professor, Lecturer, Staff" is selected.
At this time I have realized the above aim, but whenever I refresh IE browser, the input text box gets popped up though the default choice is not "Other". I have to select one of the choices (not "Other") in order to let the box go.
How to solve this problem?
Any replies are highly appreciated!

Post your code.

Is this a Web only application or is it also for a Notes client ?

I hope this helps !

The smoothest way is using a field inside a <div ... style="visibility:hidden"> and some javaScript connected to the option select in the Faculty-field to set the div to visible when Other is selected.
