View Full Version : HELP!!!! - DHTML + iFrame + Netscape = BROKEN!

I could really use some help fixing a problem with the way Netscape handles iFrames and DHTML.

I am using a DHTML menu that drops down over a series of iFrames, you can see it here:


The problem is, in Netscape, when the menu opens over the iFrame and a person rolls over his/her mouse over said iFrame, the menu disapears.

I know it's the interactivity between the two, because, I have a few sections of my site where the menu doesn't overlap an iFrame and it works swell.

If anyone has any info or the time to look at this question, you can see an example of the problem at:

http://www.twelve02.com/enter.html - If you rollover ::Portfolio and try and get to the 'Print' Link, the menu disappears.

If you go to ::Company and click Profile. This page works, because, there are no iFrames.

Remember, it works in I.E., but not Netscape.

Thanks in Advance.

I Love this place.

IE = iFrames, no iLayers
Netscape = iLayers, no iFrames

Maybe NS6+ supports iFrames, I got no idea as I've never used it

I think I may be F*CKED!


Sometimes Cross-browser compatibility SUCKS!

Try nesting your iframes withing ilayers. That usually works.
