I am writing a plugin that takes a text input (<input type="text"/>) and
hides it using $(input).hide(). The plugin then uses other controls to
update the value of the text input.

I am using Element.writeAttribute() to update the value, but it does not
seem to work when the input is hidden. However, using the old-fashioned
value property to update it seems to work. Is there a reason why
writeAttribute does not work with hidden elements, or should I be using a
different method?

I am using Firefox 3.0.6 and Prototype Thanks for the help :)
