Let’s say you have a link to show more options which expands a list of options. It’s says “more options”. It’s easy to toggle those options with .toggle() or .slideToggle(), but the text remains the same. To toggle the text too…

$("#more-less-options-button").click(function() {
     var txt = $("#extra-options").is(':visible') ? 'more options' : 'less options';

There is a bunch of other ways, as well.
