(I've moved this to it's own thread: I think it's better that way)

I've got layers on my homepage... the purpose being to display the same info in different languages.

Annoyingly, you don't start with any language, you have to select one first. And then you can't switch it off.
I thought about putting a blank to clear it; maybe my whole approach to the problem is wrong...

a picture paints a thousand words: can anyone have a look and see if they can suggest a better way of doing it:

(this site is very much a work in progress, so I know it's rubbish)

the thing is - if you don't open the page in a big enough browser window, then it messes up the java layers... they need to be fixed in a box somehow... I don't want to use frames, just tidy tables really.

cheers,
