Popup windows in IE6.0 shows background select boxes


I have a pop up window (calendar window) and few select boxes by its side. When i click on the icon of the calandar i open up my pop up window for calandar. In firefox this pop up windows masks every select box which are by side of it and shows only the window (desired behavior) but in IE 6.0 this shows background select boxes and my calendar windows looks broken and it has holes in it.

Can somebody please tell me how should i fix this?

Thanks in advance.

I have found what the error was. It is a bug in IE (select box always remains on top even if z-index is -1). There is a work around for it and i have written it work around here http://dipeshkhakhkhar.blogspot.com/2006/07/fix-for-z-index-bug-for-ie-6-select.html

The solution for this is to wrap the div tag around iframe and change their z-indexes so that the div tag will be on top of iframe window.
Hope this helps.
