I'm trying to create a barcode on barcodesinc.com's Free Online Barcode Generator. Under advanced options, I see that there is a checkbox for "Draw Value Text", when I uncheck it and regenerate the barcode, though, it is still checked.

When you generate a barcode, e.g.:
alt text

It uses a URL such as the following:


When I change the other comboboxes, I notice that the parameter that is changing is style. It stands to reason that I can send a style value which will not include the text underneath the barcode. The question is which style value do I need to use?

style     border     text     stretch     negative
-----     ------     ----     -------     --------
???       no         no       no          no
197       yes        yes      no          no
709       yes        yes      no          yes
453       yes        yes      yes         no
965       yes        yes      yes         yes

The style with everything set to no is 68. I found this out by noticing that it says "Powered by Barcode", and then I tried the sample generator on that site, and examined the style parameter.
