try the full statement,
and make sure there's an id on the element. If you don't use id's, you should, but you can do
where 0 is the index of the forms array in the source; so if it's the second form it would be forms.

@ rocknbil sorry for the late reply but the document.getElementById didnt work... i'v already tried it..
plus in dreamweaver the 'document' dosent even turn pink.. as it does in <script > tags (which is quite understandable as there are no script tags)
and i cant use the doc.forms as ACname is not an input or any other form tag but a div/span which lies right below the input tag and inside the 'form' tags.. i'v used 'this' for the inputs as you can see in the first part "this.size='25';" and it works in ff
so the thing i could conclude is that:
the getelementbyid dosent work without script tag,
i cannot use doc.forms as it target element is not a form obj but a div/span plus the 'documnt.' dosent work (dont know why)
i am now thinking to make all this a function and use the target div's id as a variable but i would still, just out of curiosity, would like to know what stopped it from working only in ff...

The correct method, as rocknbil pointed out, is to use document.getElementById. I have verified that this works, and below is a sample to show it working. I suspect you may have an error somewhere in your code, but you haven't really posted much to go by. Here is the working sample:
<div id='ACname'>This is hidden</div>

hey yes it works now...! me bad..
but i am still kinda newbie...
Thanks a million both of you.. and there is only one such input, the email column (and the hidden div reads 'required but never published') so i thought to use inline js..
