Layering
I would like to know how this is done, when you see websites that appear to have several layers to them and they are even able to have an image or a message on the bottom layer saying loadingg.. or some thing like that. Example www.downloads.com.

You use i-layers.

Google (http://www.google.com) to find tutorials.

i-layers? :confused:

I believe you are looking for z-index, its used in CSS and will stack elements.
heres an example:

<div style="z-index:1;">
Hello
</div>
<div style="z-index:2;">
Goodbye
</div>

Now, if you just pasted that into a document you may not see the effect, but if you notice z-indexes with higher numbers? Those will overlap anything with a lower z-index number.

layering can also be done with the NS proprietary element
<layer></layer>
and z-index.

If you need more assistance dont hesitate to reply here. :)
