Im trying to figure out how to place a circle image on top of a 40px height background color.  The image is 175px high.  No matter what I try, I cannot seem to get it to lay on top of background.  See image for example.

You'll probably want to use two DIV containers with relative positioning to achieve this. One for the rectangle and one for the image. Then you adjust the distance from the top of the page.
Hard to say what you might be doing wrong without your code.

I drew up something really raw in CSS that might help. http://staging.ResQTek.net/overlap.htm

the code is helpful, but here's a way to look at it...

you have 40 pix high, but you want something that's 180 pix over it.

If I start with a div at 195 pix, put my image div 10px from top, then I'll have it centered top to bottom.
then, I center my border inside that (obviously the border would go second)

The code is helpful. It has been said twice already, but it really is.

If you're trying to use z-index to bring the circle image to the top, beware that z-index only applies to positioned elements. You can always enter position: relative; without any top, right, bottom, or left properties in order to avoid moving the image.
#circle-image {
    position: relative;
    z-index: 1000;
}

Another issue might be whether or not the area outside the circle in your image is white or transparent. Is it a GIF, PNG, or JPG?
