Safari - Layer appears sometimes, not others

Sent by Travis Nep Smith on 30 September 2005 08:08


Turns out it was a nested layer bug -- Safari wouldn't unhide a layer 
using JavaScript, if the parent layer was still set to be hidden.  To 
get around it, I unnested the layers.

Thanks for the idea to change the close link, too.
