Initial Description
This assumes HTML that looks like this:

		&lt;div id=&quot;containing_div&quot;&gt;
		    &lt;div id=&quot;div_1&quot; style=&quot;background-color:red&quot; class=&quot;visible_div&quot;&gt;
		        &lt;p&gt;Test Content 1&lt;/p&gt;
		    &lt;/div&gt; &lt;!-- div_1 --&gt;
		    &lt;div id=&quot;div_2&quot; style=&quot;background-color:blue&quot;&gt;
		        &lt;p&gt;Test Content 2&lt;/p&gt;
		    &lt;/div&gt; &lt;!-- div_2 --&gt;
		    &lt;div id=&quot;div_3&quot; style=&quot;background-color:yellow&quot;&gt;
		        &lt;p&gt;Test Content 3&lt;/p&gt;
		    &lt;/div&gt; &lt;!-- div_3 --&gt;
		&lt;/div&gt; &lt;!-- containing div --&gt;
		      &lt;ul id=&quot;test_buttons&quot;&gt;
		        &lt;li&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;#&quot; id=&quot;div_1_link&quot; onclick=&quot;slideDiv(&#x27;div_1&#x27;)&quot; class=&quot;here&quot;&gt;One&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
		        &lt;li&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;#&quot; id=&quot;div_2_link&quot; onclick=&quot;slideDiv(&#x27;div_2&#x27;)&quot;&gt;Two&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
		        &lt;li&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;#&quot; id=&quot;div_3_link&quot; onclick=&quot;slideDiv(&#x27;div_3&#x27;)&quot;&gt;Three&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
		    &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;!-- test_buttons --&gt;


And CSS that looks like this:

		.hidden_div {
	        display: none;

	    .visible_div {
	        display: block;
		#containing_div {
	        width: 300px;
	        background-color: #ddd;
	        height: 300px;
	    #containing_div div {
	        width: 300px;
	        height: 300px;

	    #test_buttons {
	        background-color: green;
	        float: left;
	        padding: 10px 0 10px 0;

	    #test_buttons li {
	        float: left;
	        text-align: center;
	    #test_buttons li a {
	        display: block;
	        float: left;
	        width: 50px;
	        margin-left: 10px;
	        height: 15px;
	        background-color: white;
	        padding: 8px 4px;
	    #test_buttons li {
	        background-color: orange;
	    #test_buttons li a.not_here{
	        background-color: white;
