dynamic drop down and swif file

On all of my pages I have a horizontal drop down menu. It works on every page but the index page. On the index page I have a div below the menu div, in that div is a swif file. When I mouse over the menu only 2 categories in the level two show. What do I need to do to fix this.

I think that the problem is likely the wmode parameter of the flash content you have on the page. Here is a link to a thread that discuses the changes that are needed for this parameter to get your content to display in front. Along with this you may also need to adjust the z-index of the element that the flash is contained in.

When the menus appear behind a Flash element on the page it is likely do to the wmode setting of the Flash on the page. Here is a kb article from Adobe that discuses this and how to resolve it.

Along with the wmode you can control the stacking order further by using the z-index along with the positioning. If two elements on a page are set to the same positioning, like relative, then the z-index will determine their stacking order.
