    suckerfish dropdowns hiding behind graphics

    I'm running into a problem using a combination of suckerfish dropdown menus and background image replacement w/ suckerfish dropdown menus. In a nutshell, I have 2 sets of horizontal navigations using suckerfish. The top is all text, the second is using image replacement. My problem is the top list dropdowns are hiding behind the navigation using the image replacement. Any ideas if there is an easy way to correct this (e.g., slight adjustments to the CSS)?

    Looks like DIV's will hide behind an image. Why not use the same method for both? For example use the method for the second drop down at the top?

    For usability reasons, I would recommend only having one drop down menu anyway.

    By the way, the top manu does not appear until hover in IE6. See screenshot.

    The client insists on the second row having dropdowns as well. If there wasn't an east fix, I would change the second row to all text, but got it solved by adding:

    position:relative; z-index: 999;

    to nav

    Thanks for letting me know about IE6. I haven't done any cross browser checking yet. My JS probably isn't coded properly.
