i want to change the background color of a layer in NN (through a js function, using a onMouseOver event handler), but it won't work unless i the function writes something to the layer first. but when that happens, what i originally had there disappears, and what i wrote to the layer doesn't even show up. any ideas? #airyk _________________________________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at http://www.hotmail.com.
