I trying to develop a crossbrowser code (IE5/6 , NN6) that would load multiple external urls into a number of layers (preloading). Did anyone write before such a code?

Then I will show/hide each layer, according to what I want to see.

I believe it has been done here several times...

since iframe is both nn6 and ie4+ compatible, methods like using <iframe id="url1"></iframe> then via javascript changing it's src to get a new content will work.

hold on though.

You can use the iframe method to load URL's from external sites. However you will generally not be able to access the loaded URL (for like feeding into a layer) if is from a different domain. The default browser setting for cross domain scripting is disabled so it won't work for most users.

since ChrisV only mentionned (s)he wanted to show the content there should be no problem.

just my 0.02 code

code:
<a href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="obj=document.getElementById('myIFrame1');obj.style.display=obj.style.display!='none'?'none':''">toggle IFRAME #1 display</a><br>
<a href="javascript:void(0);" target="myIFrame1" onclick="this.href=prompt('enter the new location')">change IFRAME #1 location</a><br>
<iframe id='myIFrame1' name='myIFrame1' border='4'></iframe>
<hr>
<a href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="obj=document.getElementById('myIFrame2');obj.style.display=obj.style.display!='none'?'none':''">toggle IFRAME #2 display</a><br>
<a href="javascript:void(0);" target="myIFrame2" onclick="this.href=prompt('enter the new location')">change IFRAME #2 location</a><br>
<iframe id='myIFrame2' name='myIFrame2' border='4'></iframe>
<hr>
<a href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="obj=document.getElementById('myIFrameN');obj.style.display=obj.style.display!='none'?'none':''">toggle IFRAME #N display</a><br>
<a href="javascript:void(0);" target="myIFrameN" onclick="this.href=prompt('enter the new location')">change IFRAME #N location</a><br>
<iframe id='myIFrameN' name='myIFrameN' border='4'></iframe>
<hr>



I tested that code in IE5.5 and Phoenix 0.3 on WIN2K.
Hope that helps.
