Variable Depth Masking

I am fairly new to using Arc (having been using MapInfo for a while). I am currently stuck on the variable depth masking method. I have followed a method described on this forum dated 12 Feb 2008, but I always get the result of 'white' masks and not as described. The coloured fills (that I want to see) and the outlines that I want to mask are on the same layer. Is there something that I am doing wrong here?

Mapping Center Answer:

We wrote down step-by-step instructions for using this tool in a presenttion we gave at the 2004 ESRI UC -- try downloading the presentation and reading the bottom notes for detailed instructions.  The presentation is clled "Creating Advanced Effects for Cartography in ArcMap".

If this doesn't do the trick, please get back in touch!
