# Simple Show/Hide Text using JavaScript

This is a simple tutorial which explains how to show or hide lines in a paragraph using JavaScript. The concept is to split the lines in the paragraph into two sections and show/hide the second section by clicking a hyperlinked text (to create a toggle effect). By default, the first section in the paragraph is set to always visible, and a hyperlink at the end of the line with onclick action to display the second section. Similarly, a hyperlink at the end of the line of the second section with onclick action is displayed after a mouse click event to hide the second section.
