XML file in an IFRAME is covering other content.

Didn't expect an issue like this while I was learning XML. Please take a look at this site I am working on:

http://www.nasonconstruction.com/dev/exp_prj.htm

See the list with the scroll bars to the right?  That is an XML file in an IFRAME.   I haven't applied any formatting yet, but so far it seems to work fine.  

Now hover over one of the menus above the IFRAME.   The IFRAME content covers the dropdown menu.   Originally the IFRAME content was another HTML page and worked fine.

Is there an explination for this behaviour?

Thanks!

Not to add to your complications, but it works properly in Firefox (menu lists are fully displayed), and works as you describe in IE 7.

For me at least...

Interesting, should have checked that before posting. Same for me,  Firefox displays as desired.  IE7 and IE6 both cover up the menu lists with the IFRAME.

Any thoughts on what is going on here?

only thing i can think of is if you use z-index at all.  It functions slightly differently in IE and Firefox.  You might need to take a look at:

I have had issues with z-index and IE6/7 and Firefox before.

I am just perplexed on this one.

This issue only seems to manifest itself when using an XML file.  If I include a standard HTML file there is no issue.

Arich;

Thanks for the comments.  I am going to close out this question.  I wish to reask it and phrase it differently.  Also include it under more areas than just XLM.
