I must be missing something simple here...  need another set of eyes.
Simple hidden div on load, and when clicked, i want to display the form.

Keep getting "showaddform is not defined" when clicking on the anchor 
which should change the css to visible.

function showaddform() {

    var mydiv = document.getElementById("addform");
    mydiv.style.visibility = 'visible';



#wrapper {
    z-index: 0;

#addform {
    visibility: hidden;
    position: absolute;
    top: 20%;
    left: 50%;
    border: 1px solid #000;
    padding: 5px;
    width: 350px;
    height: 200px;
    background: #dedede;
    z-index: 1;


<div id="wrapper">
    <a href="default.asp" onclick="showaddform(); return false;">Add New 
    <div id="addform">
        <form id="frmadd" method="post">
                <SNIP />
            <input type="submit" value="Add" />
