Layer ordering CSS and Flash

I am currently developing a website that combines HTML and Flash elements.  I have a menu that is generated with CSS and below it I have a flash slideshow showing some applications of the product the site is promoting.  The problem is that there are cascading items that appear in the menu that are appearing underneath the embeded SWF below it.  I have them both wrapped in DIVs and have a z-index property attached to it and a position of relative but the z-index is having any effect as the cascading menu items still appear underneath the DIV.

I am not sure what else to try and would appreciate any expertise you may have.
I am using a table as a container.
 
HTML for menu:
 
		<td height="43" valign="middle" class="menu">
 
<div id="menubg">
<!--|**START IMENUS**|imenus0,dw_template-->
<!-- ****** Infinite Menus Core CSS [Do Not Modify!] ****** -->

Hey

Try publishing your swf as "transparent", this should make it work

Good luck!

here you go. Put the following code inside the <object> tag of the flash file
<param name="wmode" value="transparent">
