No scrolling in Netscape 4.x

Question:

The AutoScroller won't scroll in Netscape 4.x

Answer:

By default, the AutoScroller defines the styles for the content layer embedded in the <head> section of the page, but chances are you've somehow altered those styles and now all or some of the styles for the nested layer are directly on the layer itself.
However, Netscape 4.x chokes on styles defined directly on nested layers and will refuse scrolling.

To fix this, you can run Yaromat's "Layer2Style" extension (available from http://www.yaromat.com/dw/index.php?t=Command&r=layers), or move these styles manually to the <head> section of your page.

Marja Ribbers-de VroedWell, what's there to tell?

I worked as a software engineer for a well-known Dutch software company for about 10 years. But then I decided I did not want to work there anymore.
Since then, I've been working with my husband in our own company.

I "discovered" web development early 2000, and I soon found out that I could actually create my own extra (DHTML) features in Dreamweaver by building custom extensions.
My first extension was Cross-browser AutoScroller, but I've developed several other ones since then.
