CSS Menus within an I-Frame

Anyone know of a way to get a CSS menu (created with Web Assist CCS Menu Tool, of course) work within an I-Frame?

It doesn't open over the content below the I-Frame, it only shows inside the I-Frame. The height of the I-Frame is only high enough to show the first level menu, and it is not practical to increase the height of the I-Frame - too many many items within the menu.

Menu works great on its own, but in this instance, is HAS to be IFramed within a page on another site/another web server:

Example of Menu on its own:

Example of Menu where it really needs to be:

Any feedback is appreciated, even if it's "No way - it can't be done!"

It looks like you're using a table based layout. If you switched to using a div based layout and using CSS to style the site, you would be able to set the z-index for the menu to show up on top of the other divs. Using the table based layout, I don't think there is a way to style the menu the way you want.
