Dan's Layers Tutorial

Layers are a brand new concept of HTML introduced with Netscape Communicator. Layers allow you to postion elements (text, images etc.) using a coordinate system. JavaScript 1.2 can be used to make some very compelling presentations by hiding and showing different layers, and moving them around the screen for animations. This tutorial will concentrate on how to make such animations.
