www.twinhelix.com has menus that can be made to appear on top of anything.
I made 'selectbox menus' myself that do that 'by their very nature', but they are not 'smooth' and only have one level, see this (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38712).

If you have control over the Flash tag(s), yes:

Add the following parameter to the OBJECT tag:

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

Add the following attribute to the EMBED tag:


Or, if you are using two object tags, as can and is sometimes done, add the param tag to both of them.

If you are using script to generate the tags (as is frequently done to avoid the 'click to activate' feature in some browsers), the wmode transparent must be passed to the script. This is easily accomplished but, varies depending upon the sort of script one uses. Some scripts do it automatically.
