Default Netscape Layers Using CSS+JavaScript(DOM)

I wanna use JavaScript with layers on 'Netscape' & 'Mozilla'
browsers; using CSS '<DIV>' (MSIE) syntax.
[ i've also tried Netscape's '<LAYER>' but
to my grave surpise, it always fails ! ]
Dreamweaver MX layers works in every browser but i can't get
clue (how?) for its cryptic code.
[ Anyway, I don't want simply copy Dreamweaver code ! ]

i refer layers in MSIE like (for example):
<B>document.all.mylayer.style.visibility="hidden"; </B>
and it works well for MSIE and Opera

How can i do same for Netscape -n- Mozilla
I've already read Netscape's Devedge -n- spent 2 tough days,
but, still, i can't make it. (bad surprise!)
i don't know where i'm wrong in these simple job?

Please, give me way !
Provide few simple working examples ( of course after running them ).
Reply soon.

Netscape does not support document.all. I think it uses document.layers instead. But for a universal approach, I suggest using document.getElementById('element_ID'). Nearly all modern browsers support it, including Opera, IE and Netscape.

If you need more details, let me know.
