var els = document.getElementsByTagName("a");
for (var i=0; i<els.length; i++) {
    if (els[i].parentNode____has_id___submenu {
        els[i].display.none;
    }

I know that!

What I don't know if how to test if the parent id = foobar


I need this line fixed:
         if (els[i].parentNode____has_id___submenu {

Commented:
why do you need to test that?

if you get the foobar element by id. then get all of the link elements which are descendants of that, there is no need to test for that condition since you already know they are descendants of the foobar element.
