Hi -

Is this possible !! Ir yes.. then please show me the way...
In HTML code below - I want to change Top and left alignment, according to user selection with the use of Java Script.
So that the rendering page, will reposition the 'text'.
Please find below - HTML code for this 'Text'

<input type="text" name="C2A2" title="C2A2" size="1"
style="position:absolute; top:375px; left:170px; {background-color: #ccffcc}"
onchange="checkType(this, 'double')"/>
