"mailto" link in clickable div disappears when clicked.

Hi,

I have a "mailto" link in a clickable div. The link actually brings up a mail client but it makes the text in the div disappear.

I have an example here:

http://thelocalized.com/matt/contact.html

If you click on "apply for coverage" it brings up a mailto link. Clicking the link makes the text in the div disappear.

Thanks for the help!

        var v = $(this).attr("id");
        $("#recipientId").val(v);
    });

In this function
$("div a:not(.button)").click(function () {...}

You hide everything with a class of .label_copy

Ah- yes.
Is there a way to hide the div when the page loads but once it's open and you click the mailto link the text still stays....until another div is opened?
