That is not just IE, it is in the W3C DOM Core specification.

It is the way to go, unless you need to support ancient browsers.

Then you need to use Netscape 4 or earlier.

These are the only browsers to support the proprietary Netscape tag
<layer>, and the collection "document.layers" [1].

Some people still use the word "layer" about absolutely positioned
div elements. I don't recommend that, since it can be confuzed with
real <layer>-tag layers.
[1] OmniWeb is reported to have a property called document.layers, but
it doesn't work.
