As part of my page design I have to use 'position: reletive' and give it a high 'z-index' but it does not seems to work - the z-index has no effect althou it does with 'position: absolute' but then it won't look as I like it to be designed.
Here is how I'm trying to use it : <div style="position:reletive; z-index: 20;">    is there something wronge with it?  Is there any way to make it work?
thanx in advance.

I noticed that "relative" is spelled wrong. This could be breaking the z-index style.

<div style="position:relative; z-index: 20;">

If you are trying to bring a div over a drop down menu... then you are going to get the desired effect,
because of a bug in IE.
