How to accordian text in an html mailer

I have a monthly newsletter I’ve been distributing via a mass mailer. Following publication of this newsletter, I’ve been receiving some feedback surrounding access to longer articles I’d like to incorporate into the next issues. Specifically, in a newsletter edition with 6 to 8 relatively long articles (4 to 6 paragraphs), without using an java (thereby avoiding any resulting trigger of security filters), I’d like to create a “read more” function available after the first paragraph (link) to (a) allow the reader to expand the selection if interested to show the hidden remaining paragraphs, and (b) allow the use of the link to track article interest (a capacity already built into the mass mailing vendor).

I’m not interested in developing a blog (don’t have the time or energy to monitor). How should I proceed?

Thanks,

Greg~

You need the links to go to a server if you want to script accordians

Possibly CSS can be of service

How would I adapt the mouse over command to work with a link command like "Read More"?

What I gave you was an "accordion" type effect.

Here is one on a link

I split this only because both responses (from same expert) worked.

Thanks,
