if you make visibility as false.....it will not visible inside html source....

so instead of that use javascript to set the visibility hide / Show.

on client click set javascript function call and inside javascript set

To show:

document.getelementbyid("your object name").style.display=''

to hide

document.getelementbyid("your object name").style.display='none'
