There seems to be an inherent problem with form elements such as SELECT tags
being placed under layers DIV, SPAN, etc.  These elements are always placed
on top of all the layers.  I need to know if there is a workaround available
to deal with this problem.  Also, is there anything being done to address
this problem as DHTML gets more attention and use.  I understand that
Netscape and IE both treat some form elements as plug-ins and therefore like
external applications, but there are those of us who want to use forms with
layers, and the conflict is forcing us to try to figure out workarounds to
the problem.  Anyone have an answer to this??
