Hi There,
I have just found this great script
http://javascript.internet.com/miscellaneous/collapsible-text.html

I have used it on my site, the only thing I am missing is...when you click on the text, I want the background image of the title to change.
So for example you have an arrow point > to indicate you can click on the text, and then once its clicked and opened, the arrow points V   - can anyone help me achieve this?

Thanks in advance

document.getElementById("elementWithTextId").onclick = function(){
   this.style.backgroundImage = "url('imageURL')";
}

  var divNum = new Array("a1","a2","a3");  // at the left you should add a1, a2 etc. for each header you wish to include
                                          // so if you want 4 headers you should add a1, a2, a3, a4 in the format shown
                                          // enclosed in double quotes
