I was recently building a site and as it went through the first cycle of amends the client wanted to add a drop down menu. When i added the menu everything was ok, except in ie menu items were being obsucured by the elements below.

It took me ages to find out what was wrong, it was the relative positioning that seemed to be inherited for some strange reason. I did not need my relative positioning but I would like to know if there is a work around for this.
