Hello everyone,

css newbie here...ready to bang head into wall with a z-index issue, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am developing a new drupal 7 site that needs a 3 column css layout and beautyips tooltips.

The problem that I having is that in Drupal 7, I can not seem to get the beautytips tooltips to display correctly inside the 3-column css layout. Outside the 3-column css layout the beautytips tooltips seem to work fine, just inside my highly necessary 3-column lay, I can't get them to display correctly.

I have tried every trick that I know to get the tooltips to appear properly, like changing z-index and overflow attributes inside the 3-column css layout, but nothing has worked.

You can see the issue that I having at this url:

If anyone knows a quick fix or can point out what I am doing wrong, I'd greatly appreciate it. The problem is consistent across all browsers..


This is my 3-column css layout: (If I should post my full style.css just let me know)

Thanks folks

Code:
body {
	margin:0;
	padding:0;
	border:0;			/* This removes the border around the viewport in old versions of IE */
	width:100%;
	background:#e8e8e8;
	min-width:600px;		/* Minimum width of layout - remove line if not required */
					/* The min-width property does not work in old versions of Internet Explorer */
	font-size:90%;
        
}

a {
	color:#369;
}
a:hover {
	color:#de6a00;
