Hello experts.
I'm using a javascript function to show/hide panels onclick:
f.e
<script language = "javascript" type="text/javascript">
            function ShowMain() {
                  Main.style.display = "block";
                  DetailsSec.style.display = "None";
                  Options.style.display = "None";
                  Images.style.display = "None";
                  Discounts.style.display = "None";
                  HTMLCode.style.display = "None";
            }
</script>


.......onClick="javascript:ShowMain()"....
<span id = "Main">
......
</span>

i get in firebug a message:
Element referenced by ID/NAME in the global scope. Use W3C standard document.getElementById() instead.
 
any help;
