Hi guys,

Seems like there's some pretty inteligent people posting on these forums so I thought I'd give this a try :)

I have a dhtml page that I've been working on for a while and my last issue seems to be with NN7

It works perfectly in all other browsers I've tested it on such as NN4, IE6, Opera

The problem is with my bottom part... the links just don't seem to work on NN7

I put my mouse over the links and nothing happens..

My best guess is that there's some kind of issue with relative positioning..

here is how I'm defining my bottom part in my CSS file
#bottom { position:relative; visibility:show; z-index:2; margin-left:0px; margin-top:0px; left:-170px; top:30px;}

this div is nested in my maintext div so that I can position the bottom based on the length of my text.. here is how I'm defining my text
#text { position:absolute; visibility:show; margin-left:190px; margin-top:110px; z-index:1; width:580px; font-size:13px; font-family: Trebuchet MS, Verdana, sans-serif; font-color: #000000;}

also.. it seems that when I highlight the text and bring it down with my mouse so it highlights the bottom part too.. this actually gets the bottom part to work and the links become clickable.. it's very confusing I know

This is a shot in the dark but I would really appreciate it if anyone knows how to fix this..

Thank you kindly in advance

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, ivcho! Check out Marcia's excellent WebmasterWorld Welcome and Guide to the Basics [webmasterworld.com].

Have you tried using visibility: visible, instead of visibility: show?
