PhotoshopImageready w/DreamweavMX...I need to place a dhtml menu into page. Submenu's not showing. Help

So basically what I am trying to do is Create the page using photoshop Then open the PSD in image ready Slice it and then save optimized for web(otherCSS) Then open HTML in Dreamweaver and insert a dhtml menu I created using Xara Webstyle.  To do this I first created the menu Sized it and then took note of the size When creating my site in Photoshop I created a Rectangle and then Slice the Size that my menu will be.  This Works fine except one of the menus is Right next to an image so the submenus aren't visible.  (I have a menu inside a sphere(I think it looks cool))

If I start deleteing my sphere etc. I can then see the submenus underneath.  I know I can do this?  Can't figure out how.

as you used slices, you're basically using one great big glorified table.  try taking that image that's getting in your way and making it the background of the cell it's in.  to make sure that the cell doesn't resize itself, hit 'code view' in dreamweaver and make sure that the cell dimensions match the graphic dimensions of the image we just made the background.

example:

before:
<td><img src="blahblah.gif" width=200 height=250></td>

after:
<td width=200 height=250 background="blahblah.gif"></td>

i believe this is what you're after.

hope that helps.

As a web developer in pains me to see people using this method to make WebPages.

We create all our designer concepts in photoshop and then recreate it using CSS as a template in MX

CSS is a very powerful tool when used right. It is better to cut the images up as you need them, and try to create as much as you can in CSS, for example a menu bar, and other elements such as lines and boxes.

We not offen create whole sites using CSS it make life so much easier, you will also find that you can cut down the loading of your page by using CSS as much as possible.
