Hello. I need help with some CSS and Javascript. I have a dropdown box that when changed I want to execute a fuction that will change the visibility of a CSS ID.

I'm having trouble trying to find out what Javascript code to use to change the visibility. Can anyone help?

Put two classes (or IDs) in your stylesheet. One of them should have the property:

display: none;

Then use Javascript to write out a div. Have it choose which of the two classes to write out based on what the user selected. (This won't work in all browsers, of course. OmniWeb, for example, doesn't support CSS well.)

This <a href="http://www.alistapart.com/stories/alternate/">A List Apart article</a> explains a pretty good style switcher.
