Toggle effect on a button

I have just added a "zoom in" button into an info window within a Google Map (you can see it working here http://www.soundsairpark.com/sandpit/mapTest2.html).
What I would like to do is have the button change so that after it has been clicked and "zoomed in" the button value will change to "zoom out" and the onclick event will set the zoom level back to its default 8.
Cheers,
N

// code shows my info window and the zoom button
var marker = createMarker(point,'<div style="width:240px; font-family:Arial; font-size:14px"> <input type="button" id="zoom" value="Zoom" onclick="map.setZoom(15)"/><\/div>')

That is brilliant. I have adapted your script so that the the 'zoom in' toggle effect is applied to the button within the  info window.
Thanks for your help.
