  1. That comment describes the div right below it, and it’s creative, but accurate.

    The div contains templates for transient page elements that pop up under certain conditions. Some are used for fancy mouse-over effects, for instance. The purpose of the div is to make those templates hidden, since they’re never intended to be displayed. Putting them in the HTML avoids having a lot of ugly JS to generate them. It also makes them more accessible to a UI designer who doesn’t have javascript knowledge.

    Using the Chrome debugger, you may remove the “hidden” attribute and replace it with the attribute below. It will display the contents at the top of the screen.

    > style=”position: absolute; top:0px; left:0px;”
