    Form elements show above layers (IE/N4)

    HELP!!

    Have form elements between two background layers (z-index set to -1 and 0). But when I show a layer above the form elements (triggered from a menu drop down list of dynamically produced data from a database table) they all appear above the layer (N4) and the select drop down shows above in the layer (IE). I have set the z-index to 2 for the above layer. Even tried placing the form into a layer and setting the z-index to 1!!
    Would very much appreciate any thoughts...

    Regards
    Adam

    certain form elements will not allow you to put layers over them. they will always reside in the top layer. the one work around i saw (although it is probably a hassle) is to make the form element itself disapear when there is a layer over it.

    here is a page that explains in a little and also has a script that uses the work around that makes the form element disapear if there is a layer above it.
