How can I manipulate layers from JavaScript?

Troy Niven

There are Netscape Layers, but Netscape 6 no longer uses layers. IE 4+, and Netscape 6 use the DIV tag for layer manipulation.

To manipulate those layers, you can use JavaScript, with CSS property changes.

Both layers and divs act differently.

For a tutorial on Netscape Layers, check out http://members.gcnet.net/chris/tutorials/DHTML/layers.htm

For a tutorial on div tags, check out http://members.gcnet.net/chris/tutorials/DHTML/ie.htm

And at the same site there are also instructions for cross-browser methods. http://members.gcnet.net/chris/tutorials/DHTML/crossbrowser.htm

I don't yet have a resource for layers with Netscape6.
