Relative positioning above another element

Attached is a screen shot, I am trying to position a star burst above a flash file positioned relative to the containing frame.  

I've tried adding a z-index to the table and to the flash containing div less than that of the star div, doesnt seem to work; any thoughts how I can position this star div relative to the white containing box and above the flash file?

#star {
<div id="jbcontent">
<div id="star">
<img src="templates/FW153/images/star_large.png" class="normal" />
<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="720" style="margin:-.8em 0 0 0;">
  <tr valign="top">
       <td valign="top" style="padding:0 0 10px 10px;">
         <span class="intro_text">FindWhere transforms advanced GPS technology into an easy-to-use tracking<br>
         and locating service  putting </span><span class="intro_teal">peace of mind</span><span class="intro_text"> into the palm of your hand. </span></td>
    <td><div align="center" style="margin:-.24em 0 -.5em 0;">
      <script type="text/javascript">
AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase',',0,19,0','width','905','height','425','src','templates/FW153/flash/fw_intro','quality','high','pluginspage','','movie','templates/FW153/flash/fw_intro' ); //end AC code
</script><noscript><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase=",0,19,0" width="905" height="425">
        <param name="movie" value="templates/FW153/flash/fw_intro.swf" />
        <param name="quality" value="high" />
        <embed src="templates/FW153/flash/fw_intro.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="905" height="425"></embed>

Try adding

<param name="wmode" value="transparent" /> to the object parameters AND wmode="transparent" to the embed tag.



#jbcontent {
#star {
