Summary of Issue: SCR30: Script for Expanding Link Text
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
This script repeats expanding link text when clicking over and over.

Proposed Change:
Adding "links[link].className="expand" + cn;" to scripts would fix this issue.

Modify scripts as following:

<script type="text/javascript">


var linkContext = {

   "hist":" version of The History of the Web",

   "cook":" version of Cooking for Nerds"


function doExpand() {

	var links = document.links;

	var link;

	for (link in links) {

		var cn = links[link].className;

		if (linkContext[cn] ) {



		links[link].className="expand" + cn;
