Hi,
  Is there an available jQuery script where i can have 4 links.  When the user clicks on one of them, it shows a hidden div below the link (the div would have a photo and text).  When the user clicks on a different link, it shows the hidden div for this different link, AND hides all other divs, etc...
Thanks,
-Ron.
