Hey, I'm having an issue with this menu I was handed over to insert.
Now, it didn't have issues where it used to live and I didnt make
any changes, so Im not sure why the menu would be going under the
input box and flash below it. Any suggestions?

To see what I mean, scroll over the header menu here:

Here is the standard info on this type of Flash conflict:


Follow the detailed information at:

Or, if this short version (good in most cases) fixes it, so much the better! Add in this language to your object/embed tag:

Add the following parameter to the OBJECT tag:

<param name="wmode" value="transparent">

Add the following attribute to the EMBED tag:

wmode="transparent"

The problem with select elements showing over a menu drop down is generally exclusive to IE. There are various ways around it, the simplest being to move the select so that a drop down could never conflict with it. The next level is to set the select's visibility property to hidden while the drop down is over it, returning it to visible when the drop down disappears. The final level of complexity is to construct an IE only iframe 'shim' for the drop down. Iframes always display over selects in IE and may be covered with a drop down with a higher z-index. Iframe shims behave erratically in other browsers though, so the scripting is tricky.

Works good on flash objects. But what about windows media objects? It doesn't work. Any idea?
