I have posted a test design page at http://members.aol.com/starpath65/index.html

css layers are cross-browser proofed.... except for one layer... the text box at the bottom around the "feature files" section. this layer displays correctly in IE4 but is either at the top of page or gone entirely in NN.... am sure there is a property or tag I am missing somewhere that is affecting the position of this layer in Navigator.. if somebody can take a look at the source code and give me a working answer you got 200 points

Netscape doesn't properly implement positioning. This is bad news. i'm afraid you need to keep the tables for layout until netscape 5 is realeased, which will be compliant.

well I wish there were a better answer coming.
I got no choice but to shrug my shoulders and give you the points. Disappointed though cuz after reading PBall's other css-related I thought there would be a solution coming.
What really confounds me is the other layer in the page, the navigation links over top of the wooden bar... use the EXACT same tags and commands in the EXACT same manner and it displays where it's supposed to. The only difference between the two layers is the use of the border style, so I thought perhaps I was missing something there...
Let me just say here and now to no one in particular that I no longer give a damn what anybody using Netscape sees. As a graphic artist making the transition to web design I am truly clueless as to why anyone EVER liked this browser. The interface is bug and bulky, the results are unpredictable, and from a designer's standpoint it's completely uncooperative and quirky AT BEST....
the hell with it. Javascript I'll keep; the Navigator browser they can stick somewhere.
thanks for the compliment PBall. If either of you think of anything else or have time to go back and look at those border styles agin let me know. thanks and peace to both of you.
