Hiding HTML in a table

Hi, I am using some code to allow a person to click on a link and insert
some HTML into a WYSIWYG editor.

Basically, I have a two column table

Column 1 has a link which when clicked on gets the HTML from column 2 and
passes it to the editor.
As the application is running on IE I am using the innerHTML property and a
DIV tag to get and store the information respecitvely.


<div id="MyHtml">
My text is here

and then I pass through the info by going


This works fine, but I want a way of hiding the HTML which is to be passed
through. I tried setting the style of the div tag (visibility:hidden;) and
this does hide the tag but the table cell where the HTML remains the size of
the enclosed HTML (i.e. Really big) even though the HTML is hidden.

Any ideas more than welcome

IIRC, there was a similar thread recently in one of the PHP (alt.php?)
groups.  I think the solution was display:none on the <tr>.  HTH.
