Layers are not supported by Mozilla. Absolute positioning with CSS should be
used instead. Confirming and over to Evangelism (and default owner of
Evangelism).

Evangelism is probably correct. Here's the beginning of the javascript:

NS4 =  (document.layers) ? 1 : 0;
IE4 = (document.all) ? 1 : 0;
ver4 = (NS4 || IE4) ? 1 : 0;
SO = (navigator.platform!="Win32" &&
navigator.platform!="Win16" &&
navigator.platform!="Mac68k" &&
navigator.platform!="MacPPC") ? 1 : 0;

var DEBUG=0;

if(navigator.appName=="Konqueror") {
   IE4=1;
}
showedMenu="";
hiddedMenu="";

function showMenu(m) {

   if(showedMenu!="" && showedMenu!=m)
      hide(showedMenu);

   if(m==hiddedMenu)
      hiddedMenu="";

   showedMenu=m;

   if(NS4)
      document.layers[m].visibility="show";
   if(IE4)
      document.all.tags("div")[m].style.visibility="visible";
}

Yea. They think that any browser with document.layers is NS4 and any 
with document.all is IE4. They don't care about NS6 and mozilla which is 
false for both.
