Hide HTML table on the fly with javascript

Demo:

show/hide Table
Simple table Row 1 Column2
Row 2 Column1 Row 2 Column2

With a clik on link "show/hide Table" entire HTML table is hided or showed. When a link is clicked jscript function elementHideShow with parameter simpleTable which is id of table. Then function elementHideShow hide table if table is showed (display property is block) or show table if table is hided (display property of table is none and become block).

Here is a sample code:


<script language="javascript">
    function elementHideShow(elementToHideOrShow) 
    {
        var el = document.getElementById(elementToHideOrShow);
        if (el.style.display == "block") {

            el.style.display = "none";
        }
        else 
        {
            el.style.display = "block";
        }
    }         
</script>

    <a href="javascript:elementHideShow('simpleTable');">show/hide Table</a>
    
    <table style="width:300px; display:block;" id="simpleTable" border="1">
        <tr>
            <td>
                Simple table</td>
            <td>
                Row 1 Column2</td>

        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>
                Row 2 Column1</td>
            <td>
                Row 2 Column2</td>

        </tr>      
    </table>

Demo:

show/hide Row
Simple table Row 1 Column2

    {
        var el = document.getElementById(elementToHideOrShow);
        if (el.style.display == "block") {

            el.style.display = "none";
        }
        else 
        {
            el.style.display = "block";
        }
    }         
</script>

    <a href="javascript:elementHideShow('Row2Column1');">show/hide Row 2</a>
    
    <table border="1">
        <tr style="width:300px; display:block;">
            <td style="width:50%" >
                Simple table</td>
            <td>
                Row 1 Column2</td>
        </tr>
        <tr id="Row2Column1" style="width:300px; display:block;">
            <td style="width:50%">
                Row 2 Column1</td>
            <td>
