I require some help with the following problem.
I have introduced a dreamweaver drop down menu into a working page, but as you will see, the drop down menu is appearing behind the images, I need it to appear on top of the images.
Does anyone know how to force the menu to the top.
The menu is also now barely working when viewed with Mozilla.

I do not require the menu to appear on top of the ‘called in’ iframe on the page. I have uploaded a stripped down version of the page which still contains all the elements which can be viewed through the following link.

The Menu needs to be on a Z-Index above other elements on the page

I'm glad to say I have never used dreamweaver but it should allow you to specify the base Z-Index of the menu(but perhaps not)

Yes, I suspected it was something to do with the z index, but I've been unable so far to find a way to specify the z index number in dreamweaver mx, it seems to set it automatically itself when making the drop down menu. The 'mm_menu.js' file DW produces automatically when making the menu is a very complicated script, I've tried two or three times changing the numbers in this script wherever the word 'z index' is mentioned, but each time all I seem to do is break the script.
I still believe I may be able to add a line of code to the javascript file in the HTML document to force the menu to the top. Though I don't yet know what this wondrous piece of code is.
