Hiding and Showing Elements with Javascript

This is a quick tutorial to explain how you can easily show and hide page elements with javascript.

To begin with, each item that you want to hide/show should have a unique HTML ID. Let’s begin with a very simple HTML page.

<h1>This is my title</h1>
<div id="content">
	<h2>Div1 Follows</h2>
	<div id="div1">
		This is where my first div will be.
	</div>
	<h2>Div2 Follows</h2>
	<div id="div2">
		This is where my second div will be.
	</div>
</div>

We will then write a function that will hide all of the appropriate divs (in this case, div1 and div2).
