Hi there i have a page that is using layers, in Explorer it works ok, but in Netscape, the layers are all messed up, ive tried to use the <styles> with the layers styles in it, but it still doesn't work, do you know a way to get rid of this??

I'm using Explorer 5 and Netscape 4.5

Thanks in advance

Hi Zelda, and welcome to Webmaster World.

Are you working with DreamWeaver layers, or some other wysiwyg program? You say your code is working in IE, so you obviously aren't talking about the HTML <layer> tag.

You can StickyMail me the URL and I'll be glad to take a look. StickyMail is a forum utility that you can access through the link at the top of the page.

it could be a number of things.

How are you setting the layer tags..with DIVS? are they positioned relatively or absolutley?

Also are you nesting layers? if so try setting the nested layers to work from the style sheet.

it is hard to say without seeing the code.

whenever i tried trouble-shooting layers in NS, i always cut the code into the simplest structure until it works in NS. and then adding more and more to see where the killing baby is.
