Subject Re: Cocoon Portal - Tabbed layout and Radio integration

There's an crossbrowser JavaScript LGPL Project at http://www.uwyn.com/projects/relativelayers
.

It shows dynamic Layer creation at: http://www.uwyn.com/projects/relativelayers/examples/example10.html
.

Most of the RelativeLayers package is supported on both IE and Netscape.  Even Opera (www.opera.com)
can
handle some of its functionality, but not all...

mvg, Geert.
