Guys, I'm new to DW and getting pretty good at it, s-l-o-w-l-y. Today I'm trying to get layers to work and am having the dickens of a time trying to control the positioning of it. I can get it to look good in design view but it looks like crap in ANY browser. Any ideas or suggestions? Any tutorials that I should look at?

stay away from app divs. us relative positioning for layout. try the dw templates for a start of follow the different links in my sig for a simple layout to play around with

I now remember hearing that before, thanks to you. Maybe their moving around is the reason why.

I'll try your examples this afternoon,I'm a stroke survivor so I require frequent naps and I feel one coming on.

What I'm trying to accomplish is to be able to put text and hopefully a Flash movie on top of an image. If that makes a difference I would appreciate any hint you can offer.

Thanks in advance.

Yep, you can do that using CSS and a div. Set the background as the image and then add stuff over the top.
