"Because layers are not part of any W3C web standard, Netscape 6/7 and Mozilla do not support layers. Like any other browser that doesn't support layers, Gecko renders the HTML as if the LAYER, ILAYER, and NOLAYER tags were not there."
This is from the first article I find when I read about this at http://www.mozilla.org/docs/web-developer/upgrade_2.html
I'm not a web design expert, but just another programmer that uses HTML and have learned to keep well withing the lines when using various languages.
Your choice on the matter, but if you hear some feedback about it not displaying properly, then maybe you will remember this post.
I was wondering if having too many layers on a single web page can cause problems? By problems Im thinking along the lines of memory issues, but any feedback is appreciated.
To be more specific I was wanting to align my "navigation/menue" buttons in a quartercircle on the top left of the page using layers to give them an absolute position. This would be eight tiny layers in one spot, possibly with multiple overlaps. I do not wish to use an imagemap because the links have rollover images. Is this too much? Is it messy? Possible browser problems? Thanks...
P.S. The page already has about 9 layers on it.
