drop down menu and relatively positioned element

I've run into a bit of a problem... I'm trying to set up a drop down menu in my navigation bar.

it works except for the fact that it hides behind a relatively positioned element

can I use z-index to fix this?

I'd really appreciate some help on this!

I didn't look through your source extensively, but I am sure that you can easily work z-index into your style2_main.css

z-index: 5

Simply by adding that last line to each element you want indexed. Remember that the element with the higher # is in the FRONT of stack.

And you said the menu is in back of something that is Relatively positioned, but I think it must be absolute for z-index to work. Like I said ... I THINK.. hehe Hope this helps.

Thanks ZAK

That got it!

I had tried using Z-index and position: absolute; but clearly not in the right places - I tried again after reading your post and what did it was to position the element absolutely and add the z-index to all related CSS (probably all was not necessary but what the heck!)
