Give the divCart a location top:XXpx; left:XXpx; and visibility:hidden and apply the javascript.
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function ShowCart(divId) {
    document.getElementById(divId).style.display = 'block';
    document.getElementById(divId).style.visibility = 'visible';
}
function HideCart(divId) {
    document.getElementById(divId).style.display = 'none';
    document.getElementById(divId).style.visibility = 'hidden';
}
</script>

Why dont you use a javascript library such as Scriptaculous. There are many animations and effects you can use for this kind of thing, for example:

Thanks for your response. My problem is how can i make sure the div is placed right below my td. It should appear like it is an extension of the td, as though it is a drop down from the td. Thanks. Please help

This looks like it is pretty similar to what you need:

using a library is always advantageous....
by the way in the previous post you could just very the position of the div and get it right down the td.
