    shortening form element references.

    Hey guys,

    Quick question. I have a big js function which keeps referencing elements of a form like so:

    document.name_of_form...

    How could I just capture the "document.name_of_form" bit into a shorter variable, like "a"?

    It gets used so often, that would actually make my html file smaller!!

    try:
    a=document.name_of_form;
    a.field_name.value
