I am making a pull-down menu using layers (when the mouse moves over the button, a menu pops up). However, I encountered a problem when it comes to netscape. I found that the layer (the pull-down menu) is covered by the textbox which is not placed in any layer and is supposed to be covered by the menu. There is no such problem in Internet Explorer. Anyone has ideas of how to fix it? Thanks.

This is a well-known issue wih Netscape and form objects. They have infinite z-index. They always show above divs etc. The only way is to hide the visibility of the form field when the menus are active, or to redesign so that no clashing occurs

This question has been classified abandoned. I will make a recommendation to the
moderators on its resolution in a week or two. I appreciate any comments
that would help me to make a recommendation.

Unless it is clear to me that the question has been answered I will recommend delete.  It is possible that a Grade less than A will be given if no expert makes a case for an A grade. It is assumed that any participant not responding to this request is no longer interested in its final disposition.

I'm fairly correct in my answer, but obviously couldn't provide code to intermingle with the user's code without seeing his. I'd accept a lower grade here.

No need for a lower grade that is a known correct answer

It is time to clean this abandoned question up.

I am putting it on a clean up list for CS.
