The attached code snippet gives my attempt to hide and show divs using javascript.  Right now I am not getting any response from any of the radio button clicks and just need some help understanding why.



THE JAVASCRIPT FUNCTION:
 
function show_div(div_id) {
    // hide all the divs
    document.getElementById('url').style.display = 'none';
    document.getElementById('content').style.display = 'none';
 
    // show the requested div
    document.getElementById(div_id).style.display = 'block';
}
 
 
 
THE CALL TO THE JAVASCRIPT FUNCTION
 
		<tr>
			<td align="right">Content Type:
			</td>
			<td>
				Remote: <input type="radio" name="CreativeContentType" value="Remote" <cfif #CreativeContent.CreativeContentType# eq 'Remote'>checked</cfif> onclick="show_div('url'); return false;">
				Hosted: <input type="radio" name="CreativeContentType" value="Hosted" <cfif #CreativeContent.CreativeContentType# eq 'Hosted'>checked</cfif> onclick="show_div('content'); return false;">
			</td>
		</tr>
 
 
 
 
 
THE DEFINED DIVS
 
		<div style="display: none;" id="url">
			<tr>
				<td nowrap align="right" valign="top">URL: 
				
				</td>
				<td nowrap>
					<INPUT TYPE="text" SIZE=80 NAME="RemoteContentUrl" ID="RemoteContentUrl" class="Forminput" value="#CreativeContent.RemoteContentUrl#">&nbsp;
					<input name="Content" type="hidden" value="">
				</td>
			</tr>
		</div>
		<div style="display: none;" id="content">
			<tr>
				<td align="right">Content:
				</td>
	
				<td><input name="RemoteContentUrl" type="hidden" value="">
					<textarea name="Content" id="Content" cols="100" rows="12" wrap="soft" 
						class="OptsFormData">#CreativeContent.Content#</textarea>
				</td>
			</tr> 
		</div>

get rid of the div tags and instead move the:
style="display: none;" id="url" to the tr element. A table may NOT have div around tr, so the browser is ignoring that markup. Ultimately your markup should look similar to:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
 "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> 
<html>
<head>
<title></title>
</head>
<body>
<script type="text/javascript">
//THE JAVASCRIPT FUNCTION: 
function show_div(div_id) {
    // hide all the divs
    document.getElementById('url').style.display = 'none';
    document.getElementById('content').style.display = 'none';
 
    // show the requested div
    document.getElementById(div_id).style.display = 'block';
}
 
 </script>
 
<!-- THE CALL TO THE JAVASCRIPT FUNCTION -->
 <table>
                <tr>
                        <td align="right">Content Type:

                        <td>

                                Hosted: <input type="radio" name="CreativeContentType" value="Hosted" onclick="show_div('content'); ">
                        </td>
