Combobox ignores z-index

I have a page that uses a floating navigation menu that I pop open and close to configure a few of the parameters that affect the display.  I have things like # of rows, date range and the like.  Everything works beautifully except that comboboxes on the main page bleed thru to my floating menu.

My floating menu is similar to this example
http://builder.cnet.com/webbuilding/0-7690-8-6958380-1.html?tag=st.bl.3882.dir1.7690-8-6958380-1

It seems that no matter what I do with the z-index, the combo ignores it and just pushes right up to the top.

<span id='staticcombo' style='position:absolute;left:0;top:0;visibility:hidden' z-index=10>

Anyone see this behavior before and no how to make the combos behave?

Many Thanks, Alan

Reminds me of stuff my brother used to do...
"Stop it"
"Stop it"
"Mom!!"
"Mom!!"

Where's that Netminder when you need him? ;-)
