  • :: help with strange netscape bug ::

    ok i have a page like below.. where the 2 lines of bold text are commented out they seem to be screwing the navigation in NS4

    on my NS4 those 2 lines (which only actually stick the upper NAV in a positioned layer) seem to stop the navigation working when they are not commented out.. but works fine when they are in?!?

    /me is confused...

    I don't think this

    document.layers[object].visibility = 'hidden';


    is valid syntax. I never used <DIV> for layers in ns4 because <layer> is more powerful, so I don't know if it uses a different syntax for its properties. For a <layer> you would need

    document.layers[object].visibility = "hide";

    and "show"

    If the <DIV> method uses style, then presumably it would be

    document.layers[object].style.visibility = "hidden";

      hmmz - tried that with no effect

      it just seems wierd that the scripts work until i stick the top navbar in a div (which work fine in NS 4 btw ) why the hell should this affect anything?

        Well you know ... with netscape 4 the answer usually turns out to be "because"

          Hi

          Aside from the fact i would not rely on NN4 to handle properly layers which are dinamically written, anyway you can do 2 things to accomodate it:

          1) layers must be soon after the body tag: NN4 can do very very strange things if layers are not listed soon after the body tag: nothing in between.
          2) when you write to the document, do not mix scripts with html to write! And put the script which writes under the body tag.
          <script> js statememtns...</script>

          <body>
          <script>document.write(stuff); document.close()</script>

          As you may notice, the last script tag goes after body, and holds only the writing commands, ending with a close() document command.
          This would help out the elusive mr NN4...

          ciao
