One thing though - even though the first time it may be hiding rather  
than showing the element, clicking on the element a second time does  
not toggle back to "show" (block) if the element is hidden via an  
external style sheet. It stays hidden regardless of how many times  
you click.

So to say, it's not an annoyance that is overcome by clicking twice -  
it will never appear.
