I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to disagree with a few statements here: >> How about using style.visibility = 'collapse' IE does not support collapse. >> BTW, correct style.display for table row is not 'block' but 'table-row' This is true, but IE does not support table-row, so it's table-row for all the browsers except IE, which must be fed block. >> You want to use the DOM. Why, if this works? DOM involves more work and more overhead. >> But doesn't that DELETE the content, once removed the information is lost? Yes, unless you store it in a variable, the node and its contents are gone. Which is why we won't use the DOM.
