I have two questions:
1. Is scrolling done only with the mouse wheel? If yes, viewer (like me) might use the scrollbar, which clicks and makes the hidden part disappear. This might be frustrating.
2. Is closing done only by clicking outside the hidden part? If yes, viewer might not realize it, and will end up clicking several times. Is there a way to code close also by clicking on the hidden part?

Thanks, Efrat.

Very useful for hiding incidental text.

Would search engines be able to read this text?

@martin, search engines will see all the text.
@Efrat, scrolling has to be done with the mousewheel in IE but Firefox will allow you to use the scrollbar.
Closing is done by clicking outside the extra text area.
If you use this method then you may wish to give instructions to your visitors.
You could of course use a pop-up box instead.

Is it possible to construct an 'inline frame' type of site using this method with a tabbed menu such that only the 'inline' area is refreshed with each tab choice? GoDaddy has the sort of thing I am looking for.

I've been looking for a way to hide and show pieces of text for my new website. I like this solution, but I'm looking for something that stays in the same place - something like this script, The Multi-Part Content script on Dynamic Drive, which splits the content in little pages and shows and hides them with "next" and "previous" links.

I wonder if you have any fresh views on this? Hmm now I think of it, it kind of resembles your tiny hover book script.. I'll go play with that one :)

I was wondering if there was a way to make an 'expand' link, much like your 'more' link in your example, and then have a 'collapse' link within it, so that when they click on it, it either collapses what was hidden, or simply refreshes the page? Even though its easy to add a link within the 'more' section, if I do, the sytle for the em tag breaks... I was hoping there was an easy answer for this.

Keep up the great work, love your site!

Hi Stu, a great method you've got here. I've decided to use this for expanding blog entries on my nearly finished personal/portfolio site, but I've just noticed one tiny thing with Netscape 8.1 (I don't know if it's present in other versions). When the page is rendered in Internet Explorer mode, the hidden text displays a dotted grey border around it. It isn't really much of a problem, and no other browsers do this - but it'd still be nice if there was a fix for this - even though in theory the 'outline-style:none;' or even 'outline:none;' should stop this. Any ideas? Many thanks - Tom Case.
