</ILAYER>tags. The browser will render the HTML page as if those tags are not present. Any other elements (non-
</LAYER>will be rendered as if the
</LAYER>are missing. Obviously, this will change the look of the page. Let's look at an example. The following
LAYERelement includes one line of text:
<LAYER BGCOLOR="tan"> In Netscape Navigator, these lines should be colored tan. They should be white in Netscape 6 and IE. </LAYER>
Here is the rendering of this element in your browser:
The line above should be tan in Netscape Navigator. It should have a white background in Internet Explorer because IE silently ignores the
LAYER tag. Similarly, Netscape 6 does not support this tag and the line above should have a white background in Netscape 6.
