:x I have my horizontal floating menu directly above 2 iframes in a page. In IE 5.0 and NS 6.2 my menu is behind the iframes. I love this menu and its ease of use, but may be unable to use it for this reason. Does anyone know of a fix for this?

Thanks in advance.

Half of a partial work around

I've tried all the tricks I know including putting the iframes into a larger frames page. <i>It still goes behind the iframes page in the frame!</i>

I've come up with a less than partial work-around for a couple of special cases.

1. You only want some content to scroll, and not have something else loaded into that iframe.

Change the iframe to a div style="position: xx; height: same as iframe height; width: same as iframe width; <b><i>overflow: auto</i></b>"

The "overflow: auto" will make your content scroll with a browser generated scroll bar.

2. You want to swap out content in the area where the iframe is.

Do the same as above but use a hide/show javascript for different layers. They all have to have the attribute "visibility: hidden" to begin with, and you have to load which ever layer you want to be seen first onLoad.

Other than that it may not be possible as far as I can tell.
