    I think it got its start in Netscape 4 but it was called layers at that point in time. This was when Netscape and MSIE were deep in the browser war and they both were introducing heaps of vendor specific tags and were trying to one up each other. When CSS was finally adopted as a W3C specification many of the items in Netscape's "Layers" were not included in the specifications. Hence many of the problems Netscape 4 had with many of the CSS specifications.
