    Question problem with hiding div tags

    I've looked around for ways to use show and hide div tags, but I can't seem to get it to work. I'm posting the script I have that doesn't use javascript. I've also tried using javascript (document.getPropertyById('id').style.display = 'none'), also to no avail.

    Can anyone see what I'm missing?

    Here's a link to the page http://www.damianfiles.com/testingdiv.asp. I'm expecting the text box to not be there when the page loads, but then to show up when I click the top radio button, and then disappear when I click the bottom one.

    For answers, please be as explicit as possible. Thanks!

    Here's the code:

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Test</title>
    <style>
    .showdiv {display:block}
    .hidediv {display:none}
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>
    <form action="board.asp" method="post" Name="frmForm">
    <table>
    <tr>
    <td colspan="6">
    board<br>&nbsp;
    </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>
    &nbsp;
    </td>
    <td>
    <input type="radio" name="BoardType" value="1" onClick="indBoard.className='showdiv'">
    </td>
    <td colspan="4">
    Independent.
    </td>
    </tr>
    <div id="indBoard" class="hidediv">
    <tr>
    <td colspan="3">
    &nbsp;
    </td>
    <td>
    <input type="text" name="PercentTime" size="4" maxlength="3">
    </td>
    <td colspan="2">
    % of time
    </td>
    </tr>
    </div>
    <tr>
    <td>
    &nbsp;
    </td>
    <td>
    <input type="radio" name="BoardType" value="2" onClick="indBoard.className='hidediv'">
    </td>
    <td colspan="4">
    City council.
    </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td align="right" colspan="6">
    <input type="Submit" value="Submit" name="Submit">
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </FORM>
    </body>
    </html>

    I think the problem lies in the content of the DIV. The browser doen't seem to like having a table row inside it. However, if you put a whole table inside, you can do it.
    Code:
    <form onsubmit="return false">
    <table border>
    <tr>
    <td><input type="radio" name="BoardType" 
    
    onclick="document.getElementById('d1').style.display='block'"></td>
    <td>Independent.</td>
    </tr>
    <tr><td colspan=2>
    <div id="d1" style="display: none">
    <table>
    <tr>
    <td><input type="text"></td>
    <td>% of time</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </div>
    </td></tr>
    <tr>
    <td><input type="radio" name="BoardType" 
    
    onclick="document.getElementById('d1').style.display='none'"></td>
    <td>City council.</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </form>

    Wow, that was certainly it. Thanks so much for your help. I didn't think div tags would be so picky. Ahh, so much to learn...
