Hi Taco,
That sounded like a challenge, so I came up with this:
Works in FB 0.6.1, IE 4.01, 5.01, 5.5 & 6 on WinXP
It is a bit kludgy in that you have to specify indexes for your stylesheet & CSS rule, but it is just a quickie :)
One other way would be to change the className of a parent element and use inheritance to specify the different states. This way is probably a better way to go, IMHO.

Subject: [WSG] Modify class

Is it possible to modify the attribuites of a CLASS dynamically?

In other words, I now have a page with 200 objects on it, 20 of them are of CLASS:helpHidden, when help is clicked I now loop over all objects in the page and see if the object is of CLASS:helpHidden, if so then change the class to helpDisplay, obviously this takes a while and to me it looks like there should be a better way of doing it. Like for example change the properties of the class itself, for example;


        visibility: hidden;
        display: none;

When HELP is clicked change the attributes of the class to

        font-weight: bold;
        font-size: 14px;
        color: red;
        cursor: help;
        display: inline;
        visibility: visible;
