DHTML draggable closeable window..
just NOT in Netscape 4.x

Anyone know how to get around this?

I have a DHTML window which i can drag and close via a link which hides the layer. It works in IE and NN6 but NOT in NN4.x

Why wont it do it and how can i get around it?

First, let me say that I'm a marketer first, and not so much of a code-head. If things get too complex, I usually bail on that particular method. I have great respect for DHTML jockeys who manage to write solid cross-browser code.

After some experiments, I never tried dragging objects because there are such extreme differences between NN4 and IE5, and this means writing separate (and elaborate) codes. It's good to know that NN6 and IE5 line up for you ... there's hope for the future.

Usually in NN4 you use document.layers to address the dragged object, but document.layers is no longer supported in NN6. My guess would be that your problems lie in this area, and writing just one code for all browsers is not achieveable.
