Hello, I have the AnyLink Drop Down Menu (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/dropmenuindex.htm) in my website's header. Just below the header area, I have 728x90 Flash banners from various 3rd party ad networks. Depending on the banner, sometimes the drop-down menu properly appears on top of the Flash banner, and other times it drops down behind it, making it unusable. No amount of adjusting the z-index property seems to help. I have no control over the banners since they are served by a 3rd party system.

Is there anything I can do to my drop down menu to always make it appear on top of everything, including all Flash content?

Thanks!

The way you describe it, I think not. As far as I know, you have to be able to edit the object and embed tags of the flash elements to have a hope of changing this behavior. An obvious solution would be to move your menu below the banners or to put enough space or other content below the menu to give it 'room to breath'.
