No. Well, I think you can hide it using CSS, but then there would be no 
way to see that it was hidden or to show it.

I've been meaning to add some basic support for this -- at least for

theory, it's pretty simple).

(As usual, HTML is a nightmare when it comes to doing anything other 
than simply displaying it.)
