language problem?
I imagine you use a fairly large font?
I use 'normal' to 'small'
resize window to small size, so that drop-down is forced over text, in 
my window, I did not immediately appreciate the problem as the drop 
downs cover blank space, so are not obviously transparent.

however when I opened in a small window the text was now overlapping

hope I haven't dug too big a hole...

  Actually, the illegible drop-downs have nothing to do with the
resizing of the window. At least not on my system (unless you consider
1024x768 "too small"). I was not aware of the transparency effect, though,
which comes up when ignoring Web colors in MSIE. It would be necessary to
let the drop-downs drop into open space (ie no text or image underneath). I
think I mentioned to you already that the problem lies in "ignoring Web page
colors" in the browser settings.
