    Question two layer mouseover menu ... not working in Netscape

    Hey everyone.
    I've been working like mad to get this page working... and it works fine ... except in Netscape!
    Basically, my menu works with layers, and I have them positioned such that they always show in the same, relative position in IE. But for some reason, in Netscape (I'm using version 7) the alignment of the layers isn't correct.

    the address for my page is http://www.frankabbott.com/NEWindex.html
    I haven't set any code protectors, so you should be able to view all of the coding (oh - and it looks really messy - coz it kept inserting breaks into blank spaces, so I removed the blanks!!!)

    The main javascript is in the body. The layers are located under that.
    Any help would be very much appreciated!!

    Did you get a solution to the layer problem in Netscape? I have the same problem and can't get the layer to appear where it is positioned in Netscape. Thanks.

    Hey there.
    I did manage to get around the problem.
    Netscape and Explorer have different sized menu/button bars at the top of the window. So when you define an absolute position, it's gonna appear in a different place, depending on the browser ... I hope that made sense - coz now I'm gonna confuse things worse by admitting that one of my layers alligned correctly, but the other didn't!
    Oh - skip the explanation.

    What I did was insert a blank gif to pad the layer to where I wanted it. It took several trial and errors to get it right.
    Are you using mouseover links? Coz if so, just stretch the blank gif to match the size of your primary link size, and then give the gif the same link definition as the primary one.
