Hello,

In Mozilla (Firefox 1.0.7) I can cloneNode a file input element that
has a selected file value and appendChild it to another form without a
problem.

IE 6 loses the selected file value.  Is this a bug with IE that it
loses the value, or with FF that it keeps it?

I'd really like to be able to maintain the selected file value in IE.

Does anyone have any advice or experience with cloneNode that can
provide some insight?

I have not tried this on any browsers other than IE 6 and FF 1.0.7.

Thank you,
Garth
