States vs. Layers: How do you decide which to use?
"I LOVE the States and Layers features, but I sometimes have trouble identifying which feature would be more appropriate to use and when to use it. I have started using Layers only to discover that States would have been the better choice, and visa versa. Do you have any guidelines/helpful hints that would help identify, before I start developing, when Layers and/or States would be appropriate."
As Tom said, there really is no right or wrong answer, but I'm really interested to hear what all of you think about this, so I'll just throw it out there: How do you decide when to use states vs. layers?
