As it turns out, it is not possible to load a value to a hidden field.  I
had to change the input type to text.  The reason I wanted a hidden field is
because I wanted to autosubmit a form with the user's user and password set
from the cookie.  I ended up using the setTimeout event in my onload code to
submit the form like this:

function get() {
    document.Login.us.value = rot13(Get_Cookie("us"));
    document.Login.pw.value = rot13(Get_Cookie("pw"));
Subject: Re: [xsl] Need to set hidden field using javascript function

I think what you are trying to do is get a client cookie value into that
Remember, client cookie data isn't available inside the transform.  Best
put the INPUT
tag in the body, and then use a body.onload() event to load the value, on
client side,
using the browser.

IE example:

			// Retrieve the value of the cookie with the
specified name.
			function GetCookie(sName)
			  // cookies are separated by semicolons
			  var aCookie = document.cookie.split("; ");
			  for (var i=0; i < aCookie.length; i++)
			    // a name/value pair (a crumb) is separated by
an equal sign
			    var aCrumb = aCookie[i].split("=");
			    if (sName == aCrumb[0])
			      return unescape(aCrumb[1]);

			  // a cookie with the requested name does not exist
			  return null;
		<SCRIPT language="javascript" for="oBody" event="onload()">
			form1.hiddenelement.value = GetCookie("us")
	<BODY id="oBody">
		<FORM name="form1">
			<INPUT type="hidden" name="hiddenelement"/> <!--
note proper XHTML -->
