Okay, getting there, but first, an apology, and thanks - really 
appreciate this... I need to properly learn this stuff, just don't have

I had intended to just set display, mainly because there are multiple 
classes on the container, a la "expandedContainer contactDetails"...

Also, the onclick will sit on a div within the container, how would I 
reference its parent div?
