I'm trying to set up a DIV box where the contents change when a hyperlink (or whatever via mouseclick) is clicked.  For example, I'd like to have a DIV box with links above it that will act as tabs for navigating the content within the DIV.  Is this possible with java/CSS?  If so, how do I do it?

Here's an exact example of what I'm trying to do: www.pgatour.com

About mid-way down, I'm trying to accomplish the same thing they did with the News/Columns & Blogs/Most Popular tabbed box.  How did they do this??

This is a rather elegant method, that I just came up with:
css:
 
.TabHeader { height: 25px; background: #ccc; }
.TabHeader a { float: left; padding: 0 5px; line-height: 25px; }
 
.Tab1 .Tab1Header,
.Tab2 .Tab2Header,
.Tab3 .Tab3Header { background: #eee; }
 
.TabContent { display: none; }
.Tab1 .TabContent1,
.Tab2 .TabContent2,
.Tab3 .TabContent3 { display: block; }
 
html:
 
<div id="Tabs" class="Tab1">
   <div class="TabHeader">
      <a class="Tab1Header" href="#" onclick="document.getElementById('Tabs').className = 'Tab1';">Tab 1</a>
      <a class="Tab2Header" href="#" onclick="document.getElementById('Tabs').className = 'Tab2';">Tab 2</a>
      <a class="Tab3Header" href="#" onclick="document.getElementById('Tabs').className = 'Tab3';">Tab 3</a>
   </div>
   <div class="TabContent TabContent1">
      Content 1
   </div>
   <div class="TabContent TabContent2">
      Content 2
   </div>
   <div class="TabContent TabContent3">
      Content 3
   </div>
</div>
