Once again, I have a site with layers that isn't working properly in Netscape. It's an image within a table within a layer, and it's flushed to the top left instead of where it should be, and none of the client side image map thingies work. http://www.ekaboo.com/production/djk...htnewyork.html is the address, and the id of the layer in question is "map". I can't figure out what the problem is.

Yo G. I saw the site. That's a phat graphic and yo site works fine in EI but not in nutscrape navigator. I tried fiddling with the code but for some reason everytime I refresh the page a stream of water shoots from my screen into my face and I can't see what happened to the page. But I will keep trying.. Maybe with some mase repelant sun glasses.

That "map" div is working as yo have specified in the tag. You have it absolutely positioned 40 pixels left and 135 pixels from the top left hand corner of the screen.
<DIV ID="map" STYLE="position:absolute; margin-right:200; top:135; left:40; z-index:50; visibility; visible;">
<TABLE cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0>
As far as you map not working i'm guess the absolutely positioned layers are causing the problem. Try putting the map code inside the layer where the image tag is at that is using the map.
<TD><img src="images/3dmap.jpg" border="0" usemap="#manhattan"></TD>

Thanks, but no - it ISN'T working in Netscape. Look at it again in IE - the map is below the drop down menus, where it should be - in Navigator the map is flushed all the way to the top left. I admit, it's not a MAJOR problem where it is, but on other pages in the site the same problem is causing big ol' headaches. Thanks again.

there is nothing wrong with the page - it's a classic syntax error problemo dude... the age old semicolon problem... : )
your page says
<div ID="map" STYLE="position:absolute; margin-right:200; top:135; left:40; z-index:50; visibility; visible;">
change the ';' after visibility to a ':' and it will work just fine in netscape too...
netscape seems to ignore tags if it can't parse it properly... not a very smart parser... but beats IE anyday... : )
