I'm using IE7 and am trying to get a MENU to appear over an SWF movie OBJECT. The OBJECT is inside an IFRAME which is in the main page. The MENU is defined in the main page and consists of Button elements. The zindex of the IFRAME is lower than the MENU zindex .  The MENU appears over the background of the IFRAME but under the OBJECT although mouse over events such as changing the color of a menu button seem to work.
Is there a way to force the MENU over the OBJECT?

First: don't do it!

The flash object owns that real-estate and you should let it.

So is it correct to say that using normal css methods there is no way to put elements of a web page
on top of an OBJECT with video?
