It's finally hidable! See Austin's Toggle Extension page for examples!

Yay! Got Austin's Toggle Extension working on our old version of mediawiki! I imported several javascript functions from the openwetware's wikibits.js into iGEM07's MediaWiki:Monobook.js file, allowing javascript in MediaWiki:Monobook.js (above the last couple of lines) to register an Onload Hook in the manner I presume is standard for more recent mediawiki versions. I didn't mess with our wikibits.js file.

note: based on a look at any page's source, it appears that the [MediaWiki:Monobook.js]] file is being loaded before the wikibits.js file - this is probably wrong.
