I'm trying to get a layer (in Netscape...) to respond to mouse clicks. Currently the text in the layer is a link and what I would like is for another layer to pop up when the link is clicked on (defining the word in the link) The problem is that I can't name each individual layer and use absolute references (there are a too many definitions) so I need to backtrace from the link to the layer it's in. I have no clue how to do this--I can acess the document of the bottom layer but I don't know how to get to the layer above (document.layers.parentLayer does not work)

I´m not quite sure if this helps but i post it anyway
As you´re trying to popup or hide a layer it would really be a good idea to name it (at least those layers you want to do the tricks with)
Anyway, if you can´t name them would it be possible to pass the info from the anchor you are using to the function?
Just an idea
