I think that might be overkill, considering the example page at
http://peterjanes.ca/2005/robots/example does something very similar already
admit that the toggle that actually displays the alternate view wasn't all
that visible on the page; it should be better now. (It's beyond my ken to
figure out how to get that page on the wiki.)

That's somewhat clearer than the styles I originally chose; I've updated the
example page accordingly.
