Opera refuses to cooperate although Netscape is ok with it. In Opera it just puts the text visible at the top of the site and then the actual site comes next farther down the page. It looks pretty stupid.
Anyone see a problem that might cause Opera not to recognize the layer position?
I let it default and things work okay, but then, I've not tried displaying off screen yet.
A couple of outside shots at it is all I can contribute, sorry.
I'm sorry I took for granted that it was an external sheet, which BTW does not work even though it's the exact same thing......hmmmm.
Now since this works this way on the page...will I get penalized for on page css negatively positioned?
Incidentally even WebTV works with the external sheets except you gotta add about 500 px to account for the increased font size spilling over to visibility.
I havent checked it with netscape but IE and Opera seem to like it. It needs to be a CLASS instead of ID
I'm curious -- can you say the problem is definitely narrowed down to the difference between CLASS and ID? If so, was there an ID conflict in the code (i.e. was the ID applied more than once)?
This seems like an important incompatibility/oddity to pin down exactly.
I started out trying to do it with a class and it didn't work then. Mousemoves came up with the ID thing and it always worked until I got on my compatibility kick today.
Now it works in everything I've tried.
BTW the neg layer trick works well with se's....in top 3 on keys. Combine this with the 200 <br> before the code starts and people think you have a mysterious disappearing code. ;)
I used this instead of cloaking because it unfortunately is sitting on an <gasp> NT server.
This test page seems to work fine in Opera 5.10;
There must have been,because this example certainly works. Wish I would have saved the test file, Its going to bug me now because there isnt hardly any difference between the two.
Thanks Brett. Good resource
