look at cdw.com.   select elements and certain other form controls do not
have a
z-index property.  cdw developers solved this by hiding the form element
when a
conflicting pop-up menu appears and then showing it when the pop-up goes
they implemented it only for ie user agent.  it can be done for netscape 4
well but the problem is that the menu trigger must happen on links rather
other objects and getting netscape to un-pop-up the pop-up becomes a tricky

I'm assuming your using DHTML. You can't have DHTML layers over lapping form
elements. Read this article to get the full jist...

Hi everyone...I'm working on a site and I'm utilizing Fireworks generated
pop-up menus. I am having a problem where the pop-up menus go behind form
text fields and drop-down menus making it impossible to read some of the
menu items. I have tried working with the z-index of both the menus and the
forms and nothing seems to work. We did modify the JavaScript, but even when
we used non-modified JavaScript, the same error occurs. Has anyone else had
this problem? Is there a fix that I don't know about?
