Oddly enough my website works well with with internet explorer, but in Safari and Firefox for mac the subnav for the certification page falls behind the page content.  I've checked the z-index's and it looks like they are right so I am stumped.  Any help would be great!!  The link to see the dropdowns is here.  http://aciillinois.com/certification

I see the problem in Chrome as well. Give your nav a zIndex of something higher than 0
.nav {
height: 52px;
z-index: 100;
background-image: url(images/navbg.png);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
margin: 0 auto;
position: relative;
z-index: 1000;
width: 1019px;
margin-left: 15px;
}

I still see .nav with a z-index of zero on the website. Changing it works in Firebug.

Thank you so much!!  Lack of sleep has made me a little dense working on this thing.
