First question I got is What is the best way to promote my free iPage web hosting service? Thanks in advance for any comment. Another question on my mind: I'm new to using layers - I tried a simple one (one graphic behind text) and it works in IE but not in Netscape. In an old version of Net (4 I think) the graphic comes first & then the text after it (as if it was an inserted picture before the text). In Net 6.2 you don't see a graphic at all - just the text..

Most of my visitors use IE but the background is important to the design and using the graphic as background means it won't print (& the printout looks weird w/out it) or it repeats on long pages. So I'm really hoping to get this layers thing figured out. Pls help!.

Yea, there are plenty of iPage online promotional codes out there. Spiffy way to save mola on iPage now. I recommend you to subscribe for their newsletter so you can get emails of their most recent voucher codes. They typically send them out once a month or so..

I like the pic you've got there but you might want to get it into photoshop and remove the "comstock images" but never the less still looks good..

Leoo - thanks for the code - I'll give that a try..

Yes it happens in other netscapes - not the same result though - in 4 the graphic covers the text - in 6 & 7 there is no graphic - just text. i'll try what you gave me & let you know..

As for the photo in the graphic - it's still watermarked because I haven't bought it yet. figure why spend the money when i'm not even finished w/ the design! the watermark will be gone before it goes live..

Will let you know how this works after I get a chance to try it. thanks..


Edited: I tried it & it seems to be working! I didn't use all the code you gave me - just dropped in the lines near the top that dealt w/ the graphic & removed the old references to it at the end. thanks for all your help!..

No probs.

I pasted all the code just so you would know where I put the div instead trying to explain it..

Okay - so I missed one thing. it seems to work in 6 & 7 but when you print out the page you can see the translucent gifs (they appear as big white boxes instead of empty space). does netscape have a prob w/ translucent gifs?.

It also doesn't work in net 4 - hopefully no one's using that anymore!..

Don't know about the printing problem sorry, but w3schools report says that NN4 accounts for between 1 - 4%, I wouldnt worry about it!..
