i have 2 links that hides and shows content based on click.
show should become hide when div is open and vice versa.

<html>
<head></head>
<body>
<a href="#"><span>show</span> what are the conditions </a>
<div style="display:none"> MS, MD </a>
<a href="#"><span>show</span> what is the age limit </a>
<div style="display:none"> 32 </a>
</body>
</html>

<a href="#" class="sh"><span>show</span> what are the conditions </a>
<div style="display:none"> MS, MD </a>

<a href="#" class="sh"><span>show</span> what is the age limit </a>
<div style="display:none"> 32 </a>

Open in new window

$("a.sh").click(function(e) {
    e.preventDefault();
    if( $("span",this).text() == "show" ) {
        $(this).next("div").show();
        $("span",this).text("hide");
    }
    else {
        $(this).next("div").hide();
        $("span",this).text("show");
    }
