Laying a Div element on top of other html elements

RandyTommy asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-14
I had previously been showing an html table on top of other html tables by setting it's "position" attribute to "absolute".  But I can no longer use "absolute" due to other conficts.

What other technique can I use to get the "overlay" effect?  Everything I've tried only bumps the tables together side-to-side (or top-to-bottom).

(I need an answer limited to html, javascript, and css, with Explorer is the target browser.)
