to hide the table, use the css property.
applicable to MSIE4+,NS6+
function toggleElement(szId) {
 var el = document.getElementById ? document.getElementById(szId) : document.all ? document.all[szId] : null;
 if (! el) return;
 //try experimenting with block or inline = == "none" ? "block" : "none";
<img src="logo.gif" onclick="toggleElement('data');">
<table id="data" style="display:none;">

Well very pretty, if you don't need to support level 4 browsers and if it only has one image and one table and the user is actually able to understand the code well enough to maintain it.  

Of cross-browser means you actually have to do a little more work in both the script and the HTML.  Of course I'm an old dinosaur, so maybe slick is better, flexible.


If you need to support level 4 browsers, let us know.  I'm sure b1 will be happy to give you a complete solution.
