(This one smells like a bug.) Opera doesn't (yet) know event capturing or bubbling. So if you define an event on a layer the event handler will *only* fire when the event takes place on the layer. Not so much a bug as an unimplemented feature. ppk _________________________________________________________________ Get your FREE download of MSN Explorer at http://explorer.msn.com/intl.asp.
