Stand-alone file manager questions

A couple questions using the stand-alone file manager:

After creating the Insert page using DataAssist, I changed the text field named "filename" to a file field, then selected it and inserted the File Manager. First question: it lists the field name as "file1" - should I keep that or change to mine, filename? If I keep it, I realize I'll need to change the Insert SB.

Seems to insert okay, but when I try to preview, there is no folder icon showing. When I look at the code, I see a style set to visibility:hidden. Is this correct?

Here's the inserted HTML:

<input type="text" value="" id="file1" name="file1" readonly style="float:left;"/>
<div style="float:left;"><img src="../webassist/kfm/themes/webassist_v2/spacer.gif" id="htmleditor_image_1" align="top" /></div>
<img src="../webassist/kfm/themes/webassist_v2/icon_folder.png" width="20" height="18" id="htmleditor_browse_1" name="{dds:'../', startup_folder:'slideShow_front', show_sidebar:false, width:600, height:400}" style="vertical-align:bottom; padding-bottom:2px; visibility: hidden;" /> </div>

Does this look right?

Thanks - Joe
