on a site that's being developed, to increase the perceived speed of
searching through the database,
we've an image inside a span that we display before starting the search
<div id="txtShowHide" style="display:;">
<img src="server_on_fire_md_wht.gif" name="pic1"><br>
<img src="wait.gif" name="pic2">
It's hidden after the search has completed by changing the style of the DIV:
txtShowHide.style.display = "none";
This will only work on Internet Explorer, not Mozilla though.
Tried it with spans instead - no difference.
I've a feeling I might need to specify a hidden style for the div or span,
and was wondering what's the cross-browser recommended way of doing this?
