How can I adjust the z-index in this situation?

I've got scrolling text happening beneath a pulldown menu. When you click on the pulldown, the scrolling text covers it up.

I'm thinking there's a z-index setting that I can deploy, but I've not come across anything that works.

I have a screen shot of my dilemma attached. My code is also attached.

It appears to be a problem in older versions of IE, older than IE8. That's around 1% usage among browsers worldwide and most of those users are in developing countries. If I am right, then why even worry about it?

I guess because my box is using IE8 and I wanted to make sure that if there was someone out there like me, they weren't being denied the opportunity to navigate around my site.

Is it that uncommon?

Thing is, when I go out to http://www.muscularchristianityonline.com/campus, I'm using the same infrastructure, but the problem doesn't exist. So I'm just trying to figure out what I've done in my development environment that's created the dilemma.

You don't have a javascript marquee or a sub menu on that link so there's not much comparison.

I would be able to verify this as a solution if you provided a live link, but I think this will fix it without messing up something else.

#nav {
            margin: 0;
            padding: 0px 0px 0;
            width: 400px;
            height:40px;
            position:relative;
            z-index:300

            }

Glad it worked (and a little surprised that it did not mess up something else). The z-index number is arbitrary. Just as long as it's the highest z-index number on the page. Older versions of IE don't always recognize z-index unless you have position:relative or absolute.

Thanks for the points.
