CSS jQuery  Show More/Less list help

Hello,  I need a little help finishing off a JQuery function, which will show or hide list items when you click on a link.

I'm almost there, but it's messed up on page load, and not sure how to modify the function.

-- On page load, it is showing the full list, and both links See more/See Less features.

-- When you click the See all features link, it shows the full list, and hides the show all features link. So this is working.

-- When you click the See less features, it hides the extra list items, and the show less features link. So this is working.

So, just have to figure out the on page load part to get this working.
