could not get visibility property

hi, I have set of divs:  
<div id=$i'  style='visibility:collapse' ></div> and:

function show_comment(param) {
      if(window.prev_tag)  prev_tag.innerHTML = ' ';

      document.getElementById(paramt).innerHTML = 'some_txt';      
      window.prev_tag = document.getElementById(param);
}

the problem: when  I click another link  the previous div became empty as expected BUT doest collapse.

is there a way to force the div to return to its initial style'  ie :  <div id=$i'  style='visibility:collapse' ></div>

the visibility tells the browser to keep the item space there.  If you want to have div collapsed, you need to use:

  style="display:none"

u can use : this.style.visibility='hidden' for hiding the div or this.style.visibility=' ' for visible the div.

Like example

<a style="color:black;" href="javascript:void(0);"
onclick="this.style.visibility='hidden';">
Click on me, monkey.
</a>

I think it may solved your proble,
Regards,
jay

AAAA
<div style="color:black;" href="javascript:void(0);"
onclick="this.style.visibility='hidden';">
Click on me, monkey.
</div>
