I got a little problem. In mine aplication I would like to have something like that:

<div style="z-index:2;position:absolute;width:100px;height:100px">asdf </div>
<div style="position:absolute;width:100px;height:100px" onclick="alert('test')"> blbdlf blbdflbdfl</div>

(the text will be one on another - that is intended - in mine application there are text over images).

The problem lying in onclick event (and all other events) - using z-index makes all field 100x100 to be handled via first div event handler, but i would like that this div would be transparent for event handler (putting a function to pass event on this second div is not good because i have many divs under the first div). Is there any method that you know to make this first DIV transparent for events?? Thanks for any advices :)
