Div display state changes

I have been developing an image gallery which needed to be dynamic as
possible.

so I have placed the gallery in a div plus a div containing the large
image to be displayed. It works by changing the display property of the
gallery div to 'none' and the largeImage div to 'block' which has an
affect of switching pages but obviously saving time developing a single
page for each large Image, but (cliche') when I refresh the page the
with the large Image div displaying 'block' it reverts the gallery and
largeImage display's back to their default states.

how can i prevent these states from reverting back to their default
states?

Here is the code example:
script language="javas cript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
function displayImage(im gSrc){
document.getEle mentById('theGa llery').style.d isplay = 'none';
document.getEle mentById('image Container').sty le.display = 'block';
var image = document.getEle mentById('large Image');
image.src = imgSrc;
}

function displayGallery( ){
document.getEle mentById('theGa llery').style.d isplay = 'block';
document.getEle mentById('image Container').sty le.display = 'none';
}
//-->
</script>

</head>

<body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" marginheight="0 " marginwidth="0" >

<div id="imageContai ner" style="display: none; position:relati ve;
top:10px; text-align:center;">
<img id="largeImage " alt="Playboy UK Babes" title="Playboy UK
Babes"><br>
<a href="enable.ht ml" onClick="displa yGallery(); return false;">Go
back</a>
</div>
<div id="theGallery " style="display: block;">
<a href="enable.ht ml" onClick="displa yImage('imgs/large/large1.jpg');
return false;">
<img src="imgs/thumbs/thumb1.jpg" width="90" height="120" border="0">
</a></div>

Set a cookie with "state" in it. When the page is loaded, read the
cookie and set the corresponding state in the page.

Hey Randy, cheers for the speedy response but I forgot to mention that

Then you did it wrong. And know that cookies are not always accepted.
Reading/writing a cookie is the only way you are going to be able to
track state of a dynamic page from the client side.
