In my project, I?m using Iframes in order to present some data. What I noticed from IE is that the menu layer(div/span) is cropped in the Iframes area in IE 4 and 5 if the menu(div/span) overlaps the iframe. This problem has been rectified in IE 5.5 but somehow, when using the drop down menu(div/span) in an Iframe and somehow when it is overlapped by the menu, the drop down menu is transparent in IE 5.5.

That's normal and there is nothing you can do about it.....Iframes as well as form elements have an infinite z-index and only in IE5.5 will the layer be displayed on top of the iFrame or form element...in all other version the iFrame falls on top of it...

The only solution to this is to actually make the iframe disappear when your menu goes over the top of the iframe.

kinda a pain in the ass to accomplish, but i can post more info if you are interested.

nah it doesn't matter to me, i could have posted a solution, but this is not a 50 point question, the solution is certainly not an easy one.  delete it, forget about it, don't refund their points.

or if we take their points anyways, give half to me and half to Max. ;o)

STOP DELETION.



User never responded to my comment, where I offered the only solution available to their problem.  I specifically said "but i can post more info if you are interested." but no response from the asker.  


If they didn't like what "I" had to say, than Max was correct with his first comment, that it couldn't be done.


Either one, ONE of the two of us was correct, and the user didn't want to hear it, it seems.
