    adding form elements using checkbox

    sounds pretty simple:
    I have a checkout form with the user providing his (billing) address.
    Then by clicking a checkbox, additional fields should open for providing a shipping address.
    I don't want to have both fieldsets open right from the start but the second toggling when required, since i think it's an easier checkout process asking the user something like "ship to an other address" than showing a bunch of possibly unnecessary fields.

    Long story short, since i have not really a clue of JS, JQuery etc. is there a (more or less) 'ready-to-go' script i could use?
    I do it in PHP right now but think it might be (again) more userfriendly not to go serverside right away.

    Hi there,
    Shouldn't be too difficult. Something like this:

    HTML Code:
    <input type="checkbox" name="mycheckbox" id="mycheckbox" value="0" />
    <div id="mycheckboxdiv" style="display:none">
        This content should appear when the checkbox is checked
    <script type="text/javascript">
    $('#mycheckbox').change(function() {
    I got this from here:
