Problem with a layer using lightbox

I have set up a lighbox slide show on this page.

http://www.expat-online.com/club/irishclub/slideshow/thumb_nails.cfm?album=4

As you can see, my top menu which is coded in js/dhtml is on top of the fusebox layer. I was going to simply lower the lightbox but would prefer to leave it where it is and have code to make sure that the nav info is not displayed.

Appreciate your help.

give your nav menu a z-index of -1

like:

z-index:-1;  in your CSS styling sheet

Thanks for your prompt response. Changed my css for header to this:

#header{background-color:#BBA97C; padding:5px 0;  height:60px; z-index:-1}

Other relevant css code is below.

#header{background-color:#BBA97C; padding:5px 0;  height:60px;}
 
#toplogo{ width:280px;  float:left; display:inline;  margin:14px 15px 0 14px}
#toplogo img{ display:block;  border:0px solid; margin-left:50px}
 
#topbanner{ float:center; width:auto;  text-align:center; display:inline;  margin:0 10px 0 75px}
#topnav{ height:2.1em;  background:#BBA97C; font-size:.8em;  z-index:-1}
#topnav a{padding:5px 0; width:inherit}

Thanks

John

ok then set your lightbox to something like: z-index:2000; to force it on top.

if that dont work, play about with z-index on your nav bar that shows through lightbox...

i have used lightboxes before i didnt have this issue so this is why im saying set z-index on your menu bar or nav bar...
