    newbie need more help

    Here what I have (already with the help of this forum):
    Code:
    <body>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function showAnswer() {
    document.getElementById('answer').style.color = '#000'; //#000 is black
    
    }
    function hideAnswer() {
    document.getElementById('answer').style.color = '#FFF'; //#FFF is white
    }
    
    
    </script>
    
    <div id="question" onclick="showAnswer()"><span style="color:blue">Where is Los Angeles? (Click the question to show the answer)</span></div>
    <div id="answer" style="color:#FFF">in california<br /></div>
    <a href="javascript://" onclick="hideAnswer()">Review Later</a> 
    </body>
    The question is in blue color. When clicked I would like that it changes to green color. If clicked on "review later" I would like that the question turns to red color . I don't know how to combine all this. Someone can help me? I think I have to add the following coding, but can't combine the script:



    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function showAnswer() {
    document.getElementById('question').style.color = '#006600';//#006600 is green
    }
    function hideAnswer() {
    document.getElementById('question').style.color = '#FF0000';//#FF0000 is red
    }
    </script>

    The script written below work fine
    Code:
    <body>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function Answer(id,col) {
    document.getElementById(id).style.color = col; 
    
    }
    
    
    </script>
     
    <div id="question" onclick="Answer('answer','#000')" ><span style="color:blue">Where is Los Angeles? (Click the question to show the answer)</span></div>
    <div id="answer" style="color:#FFF">in california<br /></div>
    <a href="javascript://" onclick="Answer('answer','white')">Review Later</a>
    </body>
    I want to make an improvement.
    Imagine having 100 questions to answer. When I click on one question I get the answer ( the answer turns from white to black ) and the question turns to green color, which means that I have answered to the question. If I decide to repeat the question later, I click on review later, the question turns to red color and the answer to white, so that I can't see the answer.

    I suppose that I have to add :
    Code:
    id="question" onclick="question('question','green')"
    and I have to add
    Code:
    <a href="javascript://" onclick="Question('answer','red')">
    but how and where?
    Thanks for your help

    Dear vwphillips thank you very much, the script, with a few changes (see below), is working fine.
    In the meantime I got an idea; Instead of clicking on "R" for reviewing the question later, is it possible to change the script so that if clicked on the question a second time it (the question) turns to red color and the answer disappear?

    Again, many many thanks for your help.

    Code:
    <body>
    
      <script type="text/javascript">
    function Answer() {
    var args=Answer.arguments;
    for (var z0=0;z0<args.length;z0+=2){
     document.getElementById(args[z0]).style.color = args[z0+1];
    }
    }
      </script>
    
    R stands for review later</p>
    <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
      <tr>
        <td width="2%"><a href="javascript://" onclick="Answer('answer1','white','question1','red');" >R</a></td>
        <td width="98%"><div id="question1" onclick="Answer('answer1','#000','question1','green')" style="color:blue" ><span >Where is Los Angeles? </span></div></td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    <div id="answer1" style="color:#FFF">in california</div>
    <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
      <tr>
        <td width="2%"><a href="javascript://" onclick="Answer('answer2','white','question2','red');" >R</a></td>
        <td width="98%"><div id="question2" onclick="Answer('answer2','#000','question2','green')" style="color:blue" ><span >Where is Bern? </span> </div></td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    <div id="answer2" style="color:#FFF">  in switzerland</div>
    
    </body>
