DIV tags within a table

I'm trying to get different portions of a table of info to show up, depending on what's clicked (i.e. CLIENT/MIDDLE/SERVER).

Can I use DIV tags to split up a table in this way? or do I have to have 3 separate tables?  

eg. when user clicks CLIENT, the CLIENT div is visible, and the other two aren't..

I'm pretty sure I'm defining the div properly, but it's not working like I want it to right now..

<div id="divClient" style="visibility:hidden; position:absolute;">

The div would have to be in a cell.  you can't put part of the table in the div like:

<table>
<div>
<tr>
<td></td><td></tr>
</div>

Will not work.

Youw need separate tables or nested table annd then you can wrap the divs around the complete table structures.
