the enclosed document is indicating some problems with css2

in amaya the visibility:hidden   property is not working !!

in msie  the effect is as i would like it  however  netscape
seems to be doing  position:absolute   correctly......
with left and top undefined Netscape uses 0,0
but msie uses position of enclosing box which seems like 
relative to me !!!    who is correct  and is there a way to make
this work for both....   and is amaya not respecting css2 yet
that standard was set in '98  so perhaps it is time! --
