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...
