    Question Website Layering

    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 to find tutorials.

    i-layers?

    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.
