Default Accessing Controls

hi i have a javascript function as follows
function fnIsTextBoxEmpty(frmName,ctrlName) {
  if(frmName.ctrlName.value == "")
    return true;
    return false;
Now this is called as follows
var frm = document.forms[0];

'name' is a textbox.

The problem here is that the function fnIsTextBoxEmpty does not take the 'name' as the control name but the 'ctrlName'.

I am aware that i can use document.getElementById but it I know that this is not available for Netscape.
Also i hear that eval() is not very reliable so i dont want to use it.

So Plz can someone tell me the solution
