i have two frames on my page. the upper frame has a dynamically opening menu which is a div that has visibility set to visible or hidden depending on the case

the lower frame has the form with textboxes. on mouseover for the menu, the div opens, but it is not visible becuase of the frame below it. how do i get it to overlap on the lower frame so that it is visible.?

You can't, that is one of the many problem with frames (other problems include zapping your ranking down or out of search engines, and users have trouble bookmarking, printing, saving, and generally accessing your content).

Options:
(1) Don't use frames
(2) Don't use DHTML drop down menus
(3) Uses masses of JavaScript to create identical menus in the other frame and line them up with the top frame very very carefully.

I suggest taking both options one and two.

If you give up on frames then you can save yourself the work of manually duplicating code with http://www.bignosebird.som/ssi.shtml , any server side scripting language (if you are using one already) or http://david.us-lot.org/software-dolt.php (if you don't have any ssi facilities)
