    Netscape Layers for NS4

    How do you specify a border for Netscape layers, using the <layer> tag?

    Can't remember if <layer style="border: 1 px solid #000000"> works with this primitive browser
    Don't resist to assimilation. Billions of Borgs can't be wrong!

    you can put style in a layer, but it only supports a relatively primitive range of properties; border isn't one of them - but worse than that, if you apply it then a border will appear, but as a tiny box in the corner of the layer.

    The easiest way to get thin borders in ns4 is two nested tables with bgcolor and cellpadding to create the border effect.

    Cheers

    Thanks 4 that. I tried the style="border:1px solid black" and I tried border="1" bordercolor="black" but neither worked. No if you could answer me another question, do many people use NS4? I have it as a testing machine for my scripts but I dont know anyone else who uses it.

    Visit this link and see what I am making. It may not work in NS4 (YET);

    Cheers, Matt.

    NS<=4 is nearly dead... you can do the world a favour and help kill it off by ignoring it - get Moz or a later NS.

    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

    I concur - treat netscape 4 like a legacy browser with no javascript or CSS support, and you won't go far wrong
