hide/show textfields in struts form

I have a struts form, in the form depending on the select option the textfields should show/hide. Am using jquery for show/hide textfields. When I keep the theme as "simple", The textfields hide and on option selection they show up but the label of the textfield does not show up and the alignment is bad. If the Theme is "ajax" or "qxhtml" or "xhtml", the textfields hide/show properly but the labels of textfields do not hide. Is there a good compromise between the layout and the hide/show functionality?

My html:

jquery script:

I tried to change theme on the fly using jquery, but even that didnt work out. The hiding of content is working fine for me , but not the textfields.

This is probably caused by how the final HTML for the page is rendered. In your browser you should view the source of the page using the different styles to see what the differences are.
