    z-index


    Does IE not support z-index attributes? I set some z-indexes and it seems to have fixed my issues in firefox, but not in IE.

    IE does have support for the z-index property. If you could post the code that's giving you trouble I, or someone here will surely be able to help.

    I'd suggest using huge out-of-this-world z-indexes for the menus. Something like 500. I think that might be the problem.
    This way you won't even need to set the z-index on anything else.
