Nice job. It has a lot of potential.
For example, I've seen FAQ pages where all of the questions are
listed, and clicking on a question "expands" its answer. A giant page
of information can be compacted into something less intimidating that
Requiring a server request to read the "hidden" content isn't
necessarily bad. For one thing, it provides feedback in the logs
about which content is being sought.

Maybe using #anchors could help with that, at least to some extent.
