Is it possible to turn off or disable a <div> so you can use only the interior <div> without collapsed space?

<div class="first clearfix"> <div class="fred"> <img src="images/portfolio-1.png" alt="Marketing Project" class="one images">

      <h3 class="headlines two"> Marketing Page </h3>

      <p class=" thre"> This project displays the marketing page of a company website for a specific business that I am interested in. </p>

can I disable "first" and just access "fred" in my CSS?

Not really. If you disable a parent div you will disable all of its children as well.

An element can be disabled by adding a style to it and setting it's display to none.

<div style="display: none"></div>

Okay Thanks. But it would be a nice feature for future builds of HTML if DIV's could have a Toggle.
