Ok.Yes, I have made mistakes in my code that caused Prototype methods not 
to work. Prototype methods do not work on unextended elements - if you lose 
the reference to your element in a variable, for whatever reason-, if you 
try to call element methods on non-elements, or you are calling an element 
method with a typo in the argument, for instance. Have you checked all 
these by placing break points in firebug at some critical points in your 
code? Do you get any error messages in the console? Have you tried setting 
some style properties on your element directly through the native style 
declaration object? I would do this latter one first!
There are always people here to help beginners (in Prototype!)  out if they 
see an effort.
