And for those who speek english...

You use the visibility:hidden and visibility:show property in the css. A bit of javascript in your link will show and hide the layer. You can use an onClick event if you want however it's most commonly used for popup menus where you just mouseover the link to show/hide the layer using onmouseover and onmouseout events.

.content {
position: absolute;
height: 398px;
width: 230px;
top: 117px;
right: 29px;
visibility: hidden;
z-index: 5;

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
function MM_findObj(n, d) { //v4.01
var p,i,x; if(!d) d=document; if((p=n.indexOf("?"))>0&&parent.frames.length) {
d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);}
if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i<d.forms.length;i++) x=d.forms[i][n];
for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++) x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers[i].document);
if(!x && d.getElementById) x=d.getElementById(n); return x;

function MM_changeProp(objName,x,theProp,theValue) { //v6.0
var obj = MM_findObj(objName);
if (obj && (theProp.indexOf("style.")==-1 || obj.style)){
if (theValue == true || theValue == false)
else eval("obj."+theProp+"='"+theValue+"'");

function MM_showHideLayers() { //v6.0
var i,p,v,obj,args=MM_showHideLayers.arguments;
for (i=0; i<(args.length-2); i+=3) if ((obj=MM_findObj(args[i]))!=null) { v=args[i+2];
if (obj.style) { obj=obj.style; v=(v=='show')?'visible':(v=='hide')?'hidden':v; }
obj.visibility=v; }

<div id="contentone" class="content">
<p style="float:right; margin:0px 0px 3px 3px; padding:0px" ><a href="" onClick="MM_showHideLayers('contentone','','hide');return false;">[close]</a></p>
