Hi,

I have one script that creates a hovering layer effect, and another that allows a layer to overlay a windowed control such as a select box.  I'm having trouble combining the two.  Below, I will attach the two scripts and a third script in which I tried combining the two.  I know this is a tough one so help is very much appreciated.

#dhtmltooltip{
position: absolute;
/*New Values*/
top:25px;
left:50px;
display:none;
color:#ffffff;
/*End New Values*/
width: 150px;
border: 2px solid black;
padding: 2px;
background-color: lightyellow;
visibility: hidden;
z-index: 100;
/*Remove below line to remove shadow. Below line should always appear last within this CSS*/
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(color=gray,direction=135);
