    [JQuery] - Show/hide causing issue

    Hi folks,

    I have this page: http://tinyurl.com/5hascg. I'm using JQuery for a few things - :hover on the main content blocks, form validation, and show/hide.

    By themselves, everything is working great! But it's the interoperability of the last two that are causing me a headache. When you click anywhere in the "For your home" box, the content appears. There's a form in that <div>. However, when you try to focus in that <div> by clicking, the form hides.

    So, what I'd like to know is how to show the <div> contents by clicking anywhere in the <div>, but only hide it by clicking on the header (which I've temporarily given a background color of green to make it stand out).

    For reference, here's the contents of my $(document).ready section which is linked from the page above:

       // Add class to shift background images on load
       // Show/hide forms
       $('div#homepage_boxes form').hide();
       $('div#homepage_boxes> div.col').click(function() {
       // Add homepage box hover effect for IE6
       $('div#homepage_boxes .col').hover(function() {
       }, function() {
       // Form validation
          submitHandler: function() { alert("submitted!"); }
          rules: {
             txtZipcode: {
                required: true,
                minlength: 5
          messages: {
             txtZipcode: {
                required: "To continue processing your request, we need a 5-digit zip code.  Please re-type the zip code of your service address.",
                minlength: "Your zip code must be 5-digits long. Please re-type the zip code of your service address."
    I'm hoping this is a viable option, but it's beyond my limited JQuery expertise.

    Thanks in advance!
