Thanks for everyone's help.  We will try to implement 'Search' text
before the input box and putting the label tag around that.  If this
ends up being a design issue and absolutely cannot be done, we will use
the title attribute for the input box. (<input type="text"
name="whatever" title="Search">).  I understand the title attribute
should be used as our last option, but if we need to use it does it
actually make it 508 compliant?

display: none will cause it to be expunged totally, while visibility: 
hidden will leave a hole in your layout. What's your preferred option?
