    Something on these lines maybe?

    PHP Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">

    function 
    show(id){
    if(
    document.getElementById(id).style.display=="none"){
    document.getElementById(id).style.display="block"
    }
    else{
    document.getElementById(id).style.display="none"
    }
    }

    </
    script>
    <
    a href="#null" onclick="show('t1')">Link 1</a> <input type="text" id="t1" style="display:none"><BR>
    <
    a href="#null" onclick="show('t2')">Link 2</a> <input type="text" id="t2" style="display:none"><BR>
    <
    a href="#null" onclick="show('t3')">Link 3</a> <input type="text" id="t3" style="display:none"><BR

    The text boxes and links will all be in there own individaul forms. will that still work? I have an ASP loop that goes through and creates all the boxes and each will need to be unique.

    yes, it'll work the same since the form element is being accessed by the id.

    What about
    Code:
    function showTextBox(id) {
    document.getElementById(id).type = "text";
    }
    function hideTextBox(id) {
    document.getElementById(id).type = "hidden";
    }
    change the type property of the input so that it is hidden or visible.
