try:
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
function toggle(i)
{
	var div = document.getElementById(i);
	if( div.style.display=='none')
		div.style.display=''
	else
		div.style.display='none'
}
//--></script>
<span onclick="toggle('main')">Toggle Main</span>
<div id='main' style='display:none'>
    <div>...a</div>
    <div>...b</div>
    <div>...c</div>
</div>

you must set "display" attribute. for example use a function like this:

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
function SwitchVisibility(eID)
{
if (document.getElementById(eID).style.display=="none")
    document.getElementById(eID).style.display="";
else
    document.getElementById(eID).style.display="none";
}
</script>

and for change the display mode for any element you must call the function with id's of your element.
for example :
<div id="MainDiv">
      <div id="Div1" style="display:none">
            11111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111</br>
      </div>
      <div id="Div2" style="display:none">
            22222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222</br>
      </div>
      <div id="Div3" style="display:none">
            33333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333</br>
      </div>
</div>
<span onclick="SwitchVisibility('Div2');">click here</span>

thx hielo,
this will hide the main div too, is it possible to show/hide only the nested divs?


<div id='main' style='display:none'>
    <span onclick="ShowHideNested('main')">Toggle Main</span>
    <div>...a</div>
    <div>...b</div>
    <div>...c</div>
</div>

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
