ok so I'm working on a website

http://stage.achaean.com/bestfire/

when using IE the dropdown menu goes under the slideshow script ( Ultimate Fade-in slideshow (v1.5) )

I tried using layer, ilayer and zindex but IE doesn't seem to like any of em. Does anyone know a way to make sure the menu drop downs appear above the slideshow?

#yh_hover_dropdownmenu ul, #yh_hover_dropdownmenu li{padding:0;margin:0;list-style:none;z-index:1000; }

hey thanks that worked. How did you know 1000 would work? I had been trying 500 and it wasn't. There doesn't seem to be any zindexing on the slideshow besides the zindex of 0 I had been attempting to apply to it.

I recalled that the script updates the z-index of the slides so that they will cover each other as the new ones fade in. 1000 is just a 'go for broke' z-index setting (although I have seen them as high as 3000 in some scripts) but, the critical portion of this tweak is to apply the z-index to the proper element(s). I determined that using FF's DOM inspector. 500 might work if used with that particular style rule, and in fact does, I just tried it.
