Collapsible Text Code?

On this page here: http://www.asp.net/ajax/ajaxcontroltoolkit/Samples/AutoComplete/AutoComplete.aspx

You can see an area that says "Auto Complete Description"

It is an area of collapsible text.  I would like to have that function on my webpage.  I have looked at other sites for collapsible text and they are not always SEO friendly.  But in the code behind for that page, all of that collapsible text is just inside a DIV, and it is clearly SEO friendly.  But I'm not sure how to get it to work.  Can someone help me get it to work properly?  I need to have collapsible text (that will contain hyperlinks) on my page , but with very SEO friendly code (so that everything in the collapsed text is Google friendly.)   I'm using ASP.NET.

Those parts are done with CollapsiblePanels, the reference for which is on the left-hand menu of the URL you posted.

Hi, to do that use jQuery Accordion. It will help to solve your problem.

There is nothing unique about the idea of collapsible text.  Ebya does it on all their preferences pages, as does Amazon, and thousands of other vendors.

It is real simple -- You put the DIV in with all the data in it -- Then onLoad you style it -- display:none; or else set its display to none.  Then when the person clicks a link to see the details, you change the -- display:none; -- to display:block;.

That is ALL there is to it, and EVERYTHING in the page, including the display:none; blocks are indexed by google and other SEs.  All you need is an ID for the DIV to reference it, and change it with javascript.
