The form includes a select that when being changed triggers an ajax call and this inserts a new input field inside the form. Should it work that I get a value from the input field when the form is being submitted?

I would have guessed that would work.  Is it a textInput or something 
that requires you to serializeWithHidden?  Does your input have a 'name' 
property after its inserted? Does the input's id or name conflict with 
anything else in the page/form? Can you see in Firebug if the parameter 
is sent back to Seaside?  Why not just show/hide the textInput?  Are you 
submitting the form with ajax or in the traditional way?
