I've never seen a link that hides/shows parts of a page.  Instead of that,
usually the following icons indicate a place to click to show/hide:

[+] - show
[-] - hide

[>] - show
[v] - hide

You can see how good this looks in customization buffers after copying
emacs/etc/images/ezimage/doc-plus.xpm to emacs/etc/images/right.xpm, and
emacs/etc/images/ezimage/doc-minus.xpm to emacs/etc/images/down.xpm
in your Emacs source tree and restarting Emacs.

If you don't like these icons then you can try copying
emacs/etc/images/ezimage/tag-gt.xpm to emacs/etc/images/right.xpm, and
emacs/etc/images/ezimage/tag-v.xpm to emacs/etc/images/down.xpm.
