z-index problem with web page how to solve this

I have a jquery menu that drops down over a static image working perfectly.  Then I had to convert the image to another jquery that is called cycle 2 where the image replaces itself with another image.  After adding that the menu displays behind it instead of infront of the picture.  The image is in a div tag named <div class="grid_12">.  I tried adding the zindex: 1; to this and that did not fix it.  Tried modifying div tags menu was in also same thing.  Can someone tell me how to fix this?

Big Business Goals? Which KPIs Will Help You

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

"zindex: 1;" is essentially what 'normal' content is.  Most overlays are declared to be 99 or 999.  Also, 'zindex' only works on 'positioned' elements even if the 'position' is relative.  It does have to be declared for 'zindex' to work.

It is weird but  I had to create a new class that wraps around the rotating images and assigning that to the z-index 1;  It made the images go behind the menu again.  Weird as I was trying to put the z-index on the menu and that was not working.  So much for jquery.  Anyway just wanted to put this out there since it seems to be working opposite of what I thought it should be.  Thanks for your help.
