z-index script for MS Word

I am looking for a way for MS Word (as an Outlook message editor) to function z-index layers. I made an HTML with the following script. When I open with Word editor, the layer z-index does not function. It seems like MS Word does not directly use z-index but rather make <table> as a Text-box and let it use z-index. Of course, if I add the whole complex looking MS Word script, it will be available. But is there any simple way to manually add z-index layers to MS Word based HTML?

----- My script -------

<div style="position: relative; width: 600px; margin: 0 auto; text-align: left">

<div style="position: absolute; width: 600px; margin: 0 auto; text-align: left; z-index:1">
<img style="width: 600px; height:35px; margin: 0 auto; text-align: left;" border="0" src=abc.jpg">
<div style="font-size:11px; font-family: Arial; color:white; position: absolute; top:10; right:15; width: 300px; margin: 0 auto; text-align: right; z-index:2">

Since no one has responded, I'll give it a shot although I am not familiar with z-index and HTML.  From my research, however, I find that Word 2007 does not support z-index and that the "old school" table method must be used.
