Thanks for your reply...

yes, I use css with all form elements and those that get
skipped are mainly <select> elements with "onchange"
js code...
basically, the form I use is made of 2 parts :
1- a bunch of text fields, check boxes, radio buttons and
menus, all visible and used to enter data
2- a serie of hidden elements which are the true <form>
uploaded by clicking on the submit btn - those hidden
elements gather all the data entered by users and are filled
by js functions according to what users select, type and check.

This works fine on IE Mac OS9 & OSX and Win XP, as well
as Firefox Win & Mac OSX and Safari 2.
The previously described problem arises only SOMETIMES on
a previous version of Safari...
