Hi There, I want to create a text box that can expand and contract using css. If this is possible, can you help me out?I have played with things like this which seems annoyingly close to what I want:

<html><head><style type="text/css">div.test{white-space: nowrap;width:200px;height:20px;overflow:hidden;border:1px solid #000000;text-overflow: '...';}div.test:active{height: auto;white-space: normal;}</style></head><body><div class="test">This is some text This is some text This is some text This is some text This is some text This is some text This is some text </div></body></html>

But I want the box to remain large after clicking, and another click will make it small again. Can this be done?

Ok, is there a way to do that without adding any coding to the <div>? (the div is going to be generated html that I can't edit) Or is there a way to have the css text-overflow actually add an html link?
