Display: none workaround

I'm working on a mobile site of my company's intranet. To do some limitations, I can only use CSS with a bit of Javascript. Currently older versions of BlackBerry (4.5 or lower) don't support the display: none tag in CSS.

Is there any way to get this to work through CSS or Javascript? I've been trying to find a solution for the past few weeks, but I have found no way to make a block of text totally disappear.

Re: Display: none workaround

If you're designing a site specifically intended for mobile you should probably not use javascript at all and stick to server-side manipulation. If you don't want the block of text to be there, change the page so it isn't there. If you need to appear, load another page that has it.

Re: Display: none workaround

I'm limited to only use CSS and/or Javascript.  It sucks, but they don't want to redo a site for mobile content.  If it turns out being impossible, we'll just limit our site to BlackBerrys running 4.6 or higher.
