Not quite sure what you mean by 'named tabs'. Could you show me an example URL of where one exists?
If you're talking about a layer with a tab-style heading, one way might be to have a DIV tag as the first thing inside your layer, but assign a CSS class to the DIV with the same background colour as your normal background colour (eg. layer is blue, background of whole page is white, so make the DIV white background too). Then have a SPAN tag around the text, with CSS background same as layer, in this case blue. This will appear as a tab. You may need to add graphics or clever CSS colours, like this person's example. Also see this example.
Please elaborate and I'll try to help further. Otherwise you're welcome to mark this question as resolved.
like yahoo has the sections where
In the News, World, Local and Video tabs are....how do they do this?
Dreamweaver can do the behaviour of turning on/off layer visibility, but you may need to program in the changing of CSS classes. It's not too difficult though.
I'm sure Yahoo has a much more complicated bit of scripting.
I've sent you an example HTML file via e-mail to show you how it can be done.
