So, what's new? Well, some ECMA-262, revision 3 changes: Conditional function declaration, runtime errors reported as exceptions, and regular expression enhancements. Also, multiple catch clauses, getters and setters, catch keyword, and "strict" mode. Lots of info in the announcement page, so check it out!

FWIW, Mozilla hasn't chosen DIV *instead* of LAYER, and Mozilla is certainly not trying to satisfy Microsoft. Even if LAYER were supported, the DIV and SPAN tags would still be necessary.
That being said, the decision to put off the implementation of LAYER has been publicly debated on the Mozilla newsgroups as recently as 1/11/2000.
I'd suggest searching (at <http://www.deja.com/home_ps.shtml> ) for the keyword LAYER in the netscape.public.mozilla.* newsgroups.
