Hey all,

I know this is XML not DHTML.. but hoping some of you code junkies have run into a fix for this....Im posting this in several places as I have a site going live on Friday and havent been able to find an answer to this problem.

See the following page:

In Netscape, the DHTML menu slips behind the flash. Cant have that. I got it to work fine in IE thanks to a suggestion to of making the window transparent, but nothing seems to work for Netscape.

I have tried using layers and no matter what I do, the flash window forces itself to the front and covers the drop down menus... help!!!!

Thanks, as always, in advance.

It's simply impossible to do that with netscape. There are a lot layer issues with both browsers i'd keep my hands away from that. try to put a layer above a <input type="text"> it doesn't work with ie and netscape... and there's a lot more.

funny - i wonder if this board accepts this too:

<form action="test.cgi" method="post">
<input type="text">
<input type="submit">
</form>

HTD,

Thanks... pretty much what I suspected, but it's always good to see if anyone else has an answer.
