JQuery hide div on checkbox

Last Modified: 2012-05-10

I have the following code which works but I would like to reverse this so that by default the div is shown (I will remove display: none) but when the checkbox is checked the div (checked) should be hidden.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Show div on check for checkbox</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Jquery/jquery.min.js"></script>
Check me<input name="checkbox" type="checkbox" onclick="$(this).is(':checked') && $('#checked').slideDown('slow') || $('#checked').slideUp('slow');" /> 
<p id="checked" style="display: none; margin: 10px; height: 100px; background-color: #f5f5f5; padding: 10px" >
