    I would keep the values in a seperate variable and then just update the status bar appropriately.

    1. Not all browsers have a status bar.
    2. Most of those that do allow the user to turn it off.
    3. Most browsers when displaying a status bar have an option to allow Javascript to access it turned off by default.
    4. For those few browsers that allow you to actually update the status bar content, doing so identifies your site as being very unprofessional.
