How can I show/hide rows in a HTML table, but 1st row always show

Hi all,

I am generated some HTML / Javascript through the use of some XSLT, and what I aim to do is generate a table with many rows where we always have the 1st row showing (which has a +/- image there for users to click so that they can expand/collapse the rest of the rows in that table). I am having trouble with the Javascript on assigning the relevant class to the rows so that they get hidden or shown.

So far my XSL is generating the HTML table that is shown.

I know I am violating HTML here by having many tags with the same ID, but I am just looking for ways to get this to work.

Is anyone able to help me out a bit here and also suggest what I place in my 'ShowHide()' javascript method?

Thanks in advance

          <td class="collection_list"><a onClick="ShowHide('ID0EKFAC')"><img src="images/panel_Plus.gif" alt="expand/collapse section" class="expandable" onclick="changepic()" border="0"></a>07-03-2005</td>
