Menu in div-layer over transparent flash makes menu unclickable in IE6

Hi

Please take a look at following site, using IE6: http://www.leparadisbleu.be/NL/

In IE7, FF, ... it's all OK. But in IE6, the menu is unclickable.

The structure of the site:
- there is a div layer which includes a flash (with wmode=transparent).
- above the div with the flash, there is a div with a HTML-menu.

Can anybody give me an advice how to fix the css-related bug in IE6?

Thanks for the advice!

Tip: You can install "Multiple IE" (http://tredosoft.com/Multiple_IE) for viewing the site in different versions of Internet Explorer.

Regards
Mathias

No, that doesn't work in IE6 -- flash always occupies the top layer, and no menu will get above it, sorry.

Simply rearrange your page to where the flash is in its own defined region.  It is good coding practice.  To have elements like flash competing with drop down or pop up menus is just asking for x-browser issues.
