How Do You Keep The Menu on Top?

Hi Everyone

I am using CSS menu writer and everything is working well. I just added a script from Dynamic Drive (Image Slideshow) but I noticed that the image slide show plays over top of my drop down menus. I am using CS3... I know they are fighting over what layer should be on top. is there any way to simply ensure that the menu is always over top of the site content?

You can see the page i am working on here....

What browser are you using, I dont see the problem in firefox or safari

usually this can be fixed by editing the CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.css file.

change:

ul#cssmw {
cursor: default;
list-style-type: none;
margin: 0 0 0 0;
padding: 0 0 0 0;
}




to:

ul#cssmw {
cursor: default;
list-style-type: none;
margin: 0 0 0 0;
padding: 0 0 0 0;
position: relative;
z-index: 1000;
}

I have the same problem when a menu drops down and there is a flash or FLV video there.
The menu disappears behind the flash.

I tried your suggestion above and it made no difference.

you need to apply the wmode="transparent" parameter to the <embed> reference for the swf file.

e.g.: <embed src="myflashmovie.swf" wmode="transparent">
