I have an HTML form. Only problem I have that depending on the a menu item user choses it shows certain fileds and disables others. Now, this is not nice as in some cases most are disabled. I need to change it so that it shows only the onces that are needed. I recoded it using frame and having seperate HTML for each option but that also has problems as further down the line I show report that shows in a frame in which these HTML forms open. So I am back to not using frames as they limit view area.

What other way I can do this?

Thanks
