That seems sort of weird though. You're fine with putting the <input
type="text"> within the <td>, but you'd prefer *not* to do the same with the
<input type="hidden">? It seems much more reasonable to just put it in the
exact same place. At any rate, it certainly doesn't seem like a compelling
reason to change the content model of <tr>.
