How do I do layers in IE - there's no <layer> tag?

Layers in the sense of the Document Object Model can be applied in both browsers. <layer> the markup tag is only supported in Netscape 4 and should not be used for crossbrowser purposes. To create layers you can use DOM supported tags like <div> and <span>.

A.MacNair's DHTML tutorial is a good start to help you understand the basics of Dynamic HTML. It is not finished, but it will introduce you to layers.

Quick Answer:

<div id="blockDiv0"
style="position:absolute; left:4px; top:4px; z-index:4">
the stuff you want in a layer
</div>
