Writing the values is something I've never had trouble with.
It's retrieving them that's the problem...
if (document.getElementById("blah").style.width == "288px")
Both IE and Netscape 6 think that the style referenced is a null value,
even if I've explicitly set it previously.
What am I doing wrong? (I was able to come up with better code for my
particular application when I first encountered this problem, but I still
need to know where I'm screwing up.)
