Abstract: Let $ f$ be a function in the bidisc algebra $ A({{\mathbf{D}}^2})$ whose zero set $ Z(f)$ is contained in $ \{ 1\} \times \overline {\mathbf{D}} $. We show that the closure of the ideal generated by $ f$ coincides with the ideal of functions vanishing on $ Z(f)$ if and only if $ f( \cdot ,\,\alpha )$ is an outer function for all $ \alpha \in \overline {\mathbf{D}} $, and $ f(1,\, \cdot )$ either vanishes identically or is an outer function. Similar results are obtained for a few other function algebras on $ {{\mathbf{D}}^2}$ as well.
