There's only one trick I have found to bring any element above a select box. That's using an iframe. It's rather messy. Take a look here:

For firefox, you can use the style's "z-index" attribute to set a higher value for the div and for IE, you can use an iFrame instead of div with the height and width the same as that used for div.

Hope this is useful.

it should work for both. This is the example of something i wrote a while back. It's all I have as far as examples, but if you need me to show you specifically how to do yours, i can.

i still do not understand how the iframe can solve this...

this div got to be an image of windows alert...maybe i better insert into the div submit button, make it's width and size big like real alert and somhow decorate?

Here is something with Iframe that you can try:
<html>
      <head>
            <title>Script Demo Gops</title>
			<script type="text/javascript">
				function showmenu(obj){
 
					obj.style.display="inline";
					IfrRef.style.left=getposOffset(obj, "left")+"px";
					IfrRef.style.top=getposOffset(obj, "top")+"px";
 
					IfrRef.style.width=obj.offsetWidth;
					IfrRef.style.height=obj.offsetHeight;
					IfrRef.style.zIndex=obj.style.zIndex - 1;
					IfrRef.style.display="inline";
 
				}
 
 
				function getposOffset(what, offsettype){
					var totaloffset=(offsettype=="left")? what.offsetLeft : what.offsetTop;
					var parentEl=what.offsetParent;
					while (parentEl!=null){
						totaloffset=(offsettype=="left")? totaloffset+parentEl.offsetLeft : totaloffset+parentEl.offsetTop;
						parentEl=parentEl.offsetParent;
					}
					return totaloffset;
				}
 
				var IfrRef=null;
				window.onload=function(){
					var ifrm=document.createElement('iframe');
					ifrm.style.position='absolute';
					ifrm.style.display="none";
					ifrm.id='divs';
					ifrm.backgroundColor='transparent';
					var bod=document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].appendChild(ifrm);
					IfrRef=document.getElementById('divs');
				}
			</script>
      </head>
<body>
	<div id="res" style="cursor:progress;background:#828282;border:1px solid;position:absolute;width:200px;display:none">

but i having truble with fiting it to my original code(ajax)

do you see any way to use here
showmenu(document.getElementById('res'))
?

set page = new AjaxedPage
page.draw() 
 
sub init() : end sub 
 
 
sub callback(action) 
if not rstempj.EOF and action = "poll" and session("alertime")<>ptime then
session("alertime")=ptime
page.return(poll())
end if
end sub 
 
 
 
function poll()  
  poll = "<p align=center style='background-image: url(ajax\middlealertwin.jpg);color:#000000;font-size:20px;'>" & palert & "<br>" & ptime & "</p>"
end function
 
 
 
sub main() 
%> 
<script>  
var tId=""; // create global variable to hold the interval handler 
function pollDB() {
 /* call the server and when return, call the javascript function showResult with the result */   
ajaxed.callback('poll', showResult);
  
} 
 
function showResult(result) {    
$('res').style.display = 'block';
$('data').innerHTML = result; // put the result into the div with id="res"
}
 
 
// onLoad (or set the same in the page load asp thingy ) 
window.onload=function() { tId=setInterval('pollDB()',4500); 
}
 
</script> 
 
 
<div id="res" style="cursor:progress;border:0px solid;position:absolute;left:210px;width:295;top:290px;display:none">
<div id="data"></div>
<div style="float:center" onclick="$('res').style.display = 'none'">x</div></div>

Lets go step by step.
Step 1 target onload function
// onLoad (or set the same in the page load asp thingy ) 
var IfrRef=null;
window.onload=function() { 
	tId=setInterval('pollDB()',4500); 
	var ifrm=document.createElement('iframe');
	ifrm.style.position='absolute';
	ifrm.style.display="none";
	ifrm.id='divs';
	ifrm.backgroundColor='transparent';
	var bod=document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].appendChild(ifrm);
	IfrRef=document.getElementById('divs');	
}

var IfrRef=null;
window.onload=function() { 
	tId=setInterval('pollDB()',4500); 
	var ifrm=document.createElement('iframe');
	ifrm.style.position='absolute';
	ifrm.style.display="none";
	ifrm.id='divs';
	ifrm.backgroundColor='transparent';
	var bod=document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].appendChild(ifrm);
	IfrRef=document.getElementById('divs');	
}
 
 
function pollDB() {
	 /* call the server and when return, call the javascript function showResult with the result */   
	ajaxed.callback('poll', showResult);
  
}
 
function showmenu(obj){
	obj.style.display="inline";
	obj.style.zIndex="1000";
	IfrRef.style.left=getposOffset(obj, "left")+"px";
	IfrRef.style.top=getposOffset(obj, "top")+"px";
 
	IfrRef.style.width=obj.offsetWidth;
	IfrRef.style.height=obj.offsetHeight;
	IfrRef.style.zIndex=obj.style.zIndex - 1;
	IfrRef.style.display="inline";
 
}
 
 
function getposOffset(what, offsettype){
	var totaloffset=(offsettype=="left")? what.offsetLeft : what.offsetTop;
	var parentEl=what.offsetParent;
	while (parentEl!=null){
		totaloffset=(offsettype=="left")? totaloffset+parentEl.offsetLeft : totaloffset+parentEl.offsetTop;
		parentEl=parentEl.offsetParent;
	}
	return totaloffset;
}
 
 
function showResult(result) {    
	
	//$('res').style.display = 'block'; // Commenting this line
	showmenu($('res'));

IfrRef.style.display="none";
