javascript overlap

I created a page containing a menu and a drop-down
list below the menu. When I move the mouse to the
menu, it displays the selection list, but it's
overlapped by the drop-down list, in another word,
it's behind the drop-down list, part of the menu
selection can't be seen. I have tried to use
style="position:relative;", and
<LAYER visibility=hide id=menu1>,
they didn't work.
Any ideas?

layer tag is only supported by Netscape 4.x browsers
use div tag...
selected(dropdowns in Netscape 4.x) are always on top
