Add a Layer

You can create a layer in Dreamweaver in a couple of ways. The simplest is selecting the layer drawing tool and dragging the crosshair cursor on your page to approximately your desired layer size, as shown in Figure 9.1. You can also choose the Layer command under the Insert menu. This command inserts a layer with whatever width and height values are currently set in your layer preferences.

The Layers category in Dreamweaver preferences, as shown in Figure 9.2, is where you set the default layer values. You can set the default tag, visibility, width, height, background color, and background image. You can also enable nesting by checking the Nesting checkbox. Check the Netscape 4.0 Compatibility checkbox to have Dreamweaver insert code into your Web page that fixes a problem Netscape has with resizing layers. If you have a standard layer size that you use often, you may want to set that size as the default in preferences.
