Changing the class?

<div class="foo" id="foo">bar</div>

document.getElementById("foo").className = "yar";

why dont you just assign id="foo" to the <div> tag.
e.g.  <div id="foo">bar</div>

Instead of a class as classes are used for CSS.

well what I think he is trying to accomplish is .. there are multiple items that use the foo class, what he wants to do is programatically hide all items that have the foo class without having to iterate though all the items on the page
