I am trying to get the drop down menu to overlap the auto slideshow gallery on this page. Instead, it shows up behind the slideshow (and you cannot click the buttons). I checked the z index on the slideshow and nothing is above zero so I am not sure why it would overlap the nav drop down.

any help is appreciated.

This is where the gallery (smooth gallery 2.0) came from: http://smoothgallery.jondesign.net/
