Because their positioning has been specified using identical expressions 
of universally unambiguous css. That's what the whole point of the 
question was.

alphaImageLoader, on the other hand, is an MS proprietary function and 
as such will only work on IE (which admitedly cannot do true css opacity 
in version 6).

Don't be so humble Mark, your z-index values were significantly less 
bloated. :)
