    Collapse link in Netscape

    I have a JavaScript that has drop downs where it uses pluses and minuses to make the link expand or collaspe.

    So for one of my collapse link like this:
    Code:
    +myLinkHere
    If I click on the link it will be like this:
    Code:
    -myLinkHere
    nextLink
    anotherLink
    moreLinks
    It works great in IE and Netscape 7 but cant get it to work with Netscape 4 because it just stays expanded in Netscape 4 like this all the time:
    Code:
    -myLinkHere
    nextLink
    anotherLink
    moreLinks
    It will not collapse.

    Is there something in NS4 or a script out there that will collapse and expand the links using Netscape 4??

    Collapse menu codes use, most of them, position:relative style, which is not recognizable by NS4.

    On the other hand you might have document.getElementById(id) as a reference for object, while NS4 uses document.layers[id].

    The solution is to use <layer><ylayer> nested tag markers and a small browsers detector -- if (document.getElementById)... else if(document.layers) --...

    take care, the NS4 equivalent for
    document.getElementById(id).style
    is
    document.layers[id]

    Unfortunately I have not NS4 installed on this PC I am working now, so I can not build and test a variant for you (There is a long time since I have build such a code, so I reckon I don't remember those by heart) ... Try google for some older examples.
