Q253 How can I control a Layer in Netscape 4 so that it is always positioned in the same location on the screen regardless of where in the document the user is currently located?

The following ensures that the layer is always positioned 10 pixels in and 10 pixels down from the top left hand corner of the browsers document window:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"><!--
function pageOffset() {
    document.layers['layerName'].pageX = window.pageXOffset + 10;
    document.layers['layerName'].pageY = window.pageYOffset + 10;

<BODY onLoad="pageOffset()">

<LAYER NAME="layerName"  LEFT="10" TOP="10">Some content in here</LAYER>
