In critical wetting phenomena, the situation of a heavier liquid residing on top of lighter liquid is observed. The consequences of the Rayleigh-Taylor mode of instability in the semicritical wetting layer in a binary liquid mixture are investigated. We also report experimental observations in support of our theory, in the critical binary liquid mixture cyclohexane + acetonitrile.
