Hide layer after timed delay....

Hey there guys.... I am using a layer to display some travel deals on my site, i want the layed/deals to become hidden after 30sec or so. The use can click to close or make hidden the deals but if the user does not click anything in the layer, then i want it to hide itself!

Any ideas?

I found this script and it works perfectly... I'll pass the points to whoever comments first... Thanks anyways!

<script>
function hide(l)
{
    obj = (document.layers)?document.layers[l]:document.all[l].style;
    obj.visibility="hidden";
}
setTimeout('hide("mylayer")',5000);
</script>

Instead of passing points off for free, you can always ask the admins to change the point valueto 0.

To make it work with Netscape as well do the following

<script>
function hide(l)
{
    obj = (document.layers)?document.layers[l]:document.getElementById(l).style;
    obj.visibility="hidden";
}
setTimeout('hide("mylayer")',5000);
</script>
