Nothing against JS per se. I just hate the grey button look that I have never been able to change and have it look right cross-browser.
Im not even trying to do this to display lists, I just used them for the example.
I want to display the first few lines of essays, and have a <see more> botton that stays in place at the bottom whether expanded or collapsed.
I haven't used CSS since 2.1 and Im real rusty.
The code I posted is great, its just the wrong default mode and no tampering that Ive done has fixed it.
