Ajax form won't submit in ie after modifying css with javascript

I have a form that submits, in both IE7 and FF, but only works in FF. I have isolated the case down to two lines of code in the javascript, however, i need to hide these fields and have the form function as normal.
The reason i can't muck with the HTML/PHP, is because these fields I'm trying to hide need to be on the form, but the data is pulled from another field and placed into those.

//javascript jquery code
$j('#titlediv').attr({ style: "position:absolute;top: -1000px;" }); //hide title div
$j('#postdivrich').attr({ style: "position:absolute;top: -1000px;"}); //hide post div

I've tried doing this the same way with document.getElementById(element).className = 'hideme', but the exact same results occur.

try using

document.getElementById(element).style.display='none';

or better use hidden field
<input type="hidden" name="yourelementname" value="" />

what is $j() doing? Unless you aliased that function, it should be either:
$jQuery('#titlediv').attr({ style: "position:absolute;top: -1000px;" }); //hide title div
$jQuery('#postdivrich').attr({ style: "position:absolute;top: -1000px;"}); //hide post div

OR:
$('#titlediv').attr({ style: "position:absolute;top: -1000px;" }); //hide title div
$('#postdivrich').attr({ style: "position:absolute;top: -1000px;"}); //hide post div

i don't like some element at top: -1000px; creating unnecessary load on the browser when there is much cleaner methods available for hiding an element :)
