    Flyout Menus Overlapping Frames? How Do You Do It?

    Hi,

    I'm trying to program a page which is made up of several frames, two of which are the navigation frame (on the left) and the main content frame (to the right, similar to www.microsoft.com.)

    I'd like to know what script www.microsoft.com uses to overlap its menu contents over the main content frame on its homepage.

    How did they do that?

    You're not allowed to position content across frame borders.

    If you look closely at Microsofts code, you'll see no frames in their markup.

    So, if you want to use your flyout menus, you have to restructure the markup, so you're not using frames where the menu is supposed to appear.
