Quite simple question for a javascript expert I'm sure; I want to be able to show an extra input field with his label if the user check a checkbox

<input type="checkbox" name="slabed[]" value="1"> <b>Slabed</b> <span><b>By</b><input type="text" name="slabedby[]"></span>

some details: Dynamic form
                      within a PHP script
                      could have more than one field hence the bracket [] for making array of the form submission.
                      Has to work in all major Browsers
                      The input field inside the tag might turn out to be a dropdown instead, not sure yet.

Like this:



<span><input type="checkbox" name="slabed[]" value="1" onClick="checkBox(this)" > <b>Slabed</b> <span style="display:none;"><b>By</b><input type="text" name="slabedby[]"></span></span>
<script>
function checkBox(theBox){
  var theSpan = theBox.parentNode;
  theSpan = theSpan.getElementsByTagName("span")[0];
  theSpan.style.display=(theBox.checked)?"inline":"none";
}
</script>


For the select open please a new question.
