Hi,
I have drop down menu in JavaScript.. The menu can be unfolded by mouse over.

in my page there is one applet... which is top of page

However, when the menus "slide out" overtop of form elements the Applet render over the menus. This is quite disturbing sometimes.

May I ask if there is any way to let the expanded menus covers whatever on the form ?



Thanks in advance,Please help meee
