I have an onclick event handler which runs a script to test if and element id has innerHTML == nothing.  Problem is when I click on a table row it requires a double click to load the innerHTML of the call.  Hope this makes sense as I am knew to javscript.
<script>
function loadHub(id, jid){
	var testLoad = document.getElementById('loadDiv' + id);
	if(testLoad.innerHTML == '') {
		loadJob(id, jid);
	} else {
		unloadJob(id);
	}
}
	
	
function loadJob(id, jid){
	var ajaxRequest;  // The variable that makes Ajax possible!
	
	try{
		// Opera 8.0+, Firefox, Safari
		ajaxRequest = new XMLHttpRequest();
	} catch (e){
		// Internet Explorer Browsers
		try{
			ajaxRequest = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
		} catch (e) {
			try{
				ajaxRequest = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
			} catch (e){
				// Something went wrong
				alert("Your browser broke!");
				return false;
			}
		}
	}
	// Create a function that will receive data sent from the server
	ajaxRequest.onreadystatechange = function(){
		if(ajaxRequest.readyState == 4){
			var ajaxDisplay = document.getElementById('loadDiv' + id);
			ajaxDisplay.innerHTML = ajaxRequest.responseText;
 
		}
	}
	var queryString = "?id=" + id + "&jid=" + jid;
	ajaxRequest.open("GET", "loadjob.php" + queryString, true);
	ajaxRequest.send(null); 
}
 
function unloadJob(id){
	var ajaxClose = document.getElementById('loadDiv' + id);
	ajaxClose.innerHTML = "";
 
}
</script>
 
<?php
while($rows=mysql_fetch_array($result)){
	$jid = $rows['JID'];
    $cid = $rows['CID'];
$total = mysql_num_rows($result);
if(is_odd($i)){
echo "<tr class = 'odd' onclick='loadHub($i, $jid)'>";
} else {
echo "<tr onclick='loadHub($i, $jid)'>";
}
echo"<td>".$rows['JID']."</td>
     <td>".$rows['CID']."</td>
     <td class = 'bunked'><ul><li>".$rows['pname']."</li>
	 						  <li class = 'bunked'>".$rows['zname']."</li></ul></td>
	 <td class = 'bunked'><ul><li>".$rows['name']."</li>
	 						  <li class = 'bunked'>".$rows['address']."</li></ul></td>
	 <td class = 'bunked'><ul><li>".formatPhone($rows['home'])."</li>
	 						  <li class = 'bunked'>".formatPhone($rows['cell'])."</li></ul></td>
     <td>".$rows['summary']."</td>
  	 </tr>";
	 if(is_odd($i)){
			echo "<tr class = 'odd' onclick='loadJob($i, $jid)'>";
		} else {
			echo "<tr onclick='loadJob($i, $jid)'>";
		}
	 if(strlen($rows['description']) < 200) {
	 echo "<td colspan = '6'>".nl2br($rows['description'])."</td>";
	 } else {
	 echo "<td colspan = '6'>See Full Description</tr>"; 
	 }
	 echo"</tr>
	 <tr class='space'><td id = 'space".$i."' colspan = '11'><div id = 'loadDiv".$i."'> </div></td></tr>";
	 
	  
$i++;
}
?>

it is taking a double click to work because the first click it is not = '', it is null or nothing.  So your code is setting the value to '' on the first click then the second click it will respond.  try flipping the check as follows

function loadHub(id, jid){
        var testLoad = document.getElementById('loadDiv' + id);
        if(testLoad.innerHTML != '') {
               unloadJob(id);
        } else {
               loadJob(id, jid);
        }
}
