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>
