Please look at the FAQ section of my website www.garblecard.com.  Notice when you click on the last question it expands the text and opens up the next question.  It is definitely a <span> problem, but I can not find it.  I want two things, if possible.  One is the solution and one is how you found it?  Thanks for the help.

<span id="show6" class="show"><a href="#" onClick="toggle_visibility('readthis6');return false;"><h3> Hard evidence that RFID hacking is a problem is hard to find?  Is it really a threat?</h3></a></span><span id="readthis6" class="hide"> For years YouTube has brought us funny, informative and lengthy videos of RFID hacking.  So why don’t more people know the risks?  One of the reasons is that the victim doesn’t even know it’s happened.  If the RFID card skimming is successful, there is no sound, trace or touch, it just happens.  When the victim discovers the credit card has been hacked, they don’t even think RFID skimming as a possibility.<p><p>  
Why isn't RFID skimming happening all the time?  No one seems sure that it's not happening all the time.  But, as more and more FRID cards are issued by Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover, more people are potentially at risk.  At some point, as the number of Smarcards in the field increases, there will be examples of this activity and people will take notice.<p>

<br />The short answer is, if you don’t think it’s a threat, you will. Without some kind of protection, every Smartcard in every wallet or purse is at risk. How much is it worth to get some protection. That’s what people need to be thinking.<br /></span>

Smart cards are currently used worldwide for many applications, including healthcare, financial, transit, telecommunications, and secure identification. Uses most common in the United States include - The U.S. Federal Government Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card being issued by all Federal agencies for employees and contractors; the ePassport being issued by the Department of State; and Payment cards and devices being issued by American Express, Discover Network, MasterCard and Visa. – see http://www.smartcardalliance.org/pages/alliance

First try this HTML for the last question:
<span class="hide" id="readthis6" style="display: none;">
	For years YouTube has brought us funny, informative and lengthy videos of RFID hacking. So why don&rsquo;t more people know the risks? One of the reasons is that the victim doesn&rsquo;t
     even know it&rsquo;s happened. If the RFID card skimming is successful, there is no sound, trace or touch, it just happens. When the victim discovers the credit card has been hacked, they don&rsquo;t even think RFID skimming as a
     possibility.
   </span>

     <p><span class="hide" id="readthis6" style="display: none;"></span></p>

     <p><span class="hide" id="readthis6" style="display: none;">Why isn't RFID skimming happening all the time? No one seems sure that it's not happening all the time. But, as more and more FRID cards are issued by Visa, Mastercard, American
     Express and Discover, more people are potentially at risk. At some point, as the number of Smarcards in the field increases, there will be examples of this activity and people will take notice.</span></p>

No this does not work.  This just makes it a giant mess.

There a 39 validation errors on this page including an unclosed span.

Fix these and I suspect your problem will be resolved.

How to find the errors

Get the HTML Validation plugin for firefox - opening the source of the page in your browser (right click view source) will give you a validation window with the errors and where they are

When I pasted my code above into your page with Firebug, it worked fine. There is an unclosed span tag as julianH pointed out. With 39 validation errors though, your best bet is to go through each one and fix it before proceeding.

See my last post - the <span> might not be the problem beacuse the open <p> tags are confusing the issue. Remove (or close) those <p> tags first.
