	Layer is not in any official HTML standard; it is a Netscape
	proprietory extension.  Netscape attempts to map
style="position:absolute"
	to layer but only supports this on a limited number of elements and
	has an object model that is incompatible with Internet Explorer in
	this area.

	I think you need to take this up on a Netscape support newsgroup.

	One specific way in which Netscape's object model differs is that
layers
	are in a different namespace from the containing document, which is
	probably your specific problem.

	This sort of dynamic content is generally an accessibility as well
as
	a portability issue.
