    how to access field names with a period in name

    Hi,
    I am having field names in HTML with a period in them for e.g.
    <INPUT TYPE='hidden' NAME='cars.toyota.camry' VALUE='22K'>
    I need to know how to access this field name in Javascript.

    thanks

    document.forms['formname'].elements['cars.toyota.camry'] should work.
