<div style="background-color:green; height:300px; width:300px; overflow:auto;">
    <div style="height:400px; width:400px; position:absolute; z-index:500; background-color:yellow; top:500px;">

if you look at this in html, you'll see that the inner div positions it self lower but its still inside the overflow and now has scroll bars..  is there anyway possible to use css to break free of this and have the absolute positioning actually be the positioning on the page and not the div?
