Layering of Div tags issue

I have a TD tag with a nested DIV tag and then a nested applet tag. I'm trying to create a layer that goes over the entire page that is transparent (using opacity and/or filter) to give the illusion the page is disabled. This works for everything except the applet. The applet basically draws a simple geometric shape within it. Everything on the page falls behind the "transparency layer" except the applet or possibly the parent div tag and it's contents. On top of the layer that attempts to gray out the form I also have a centered div tag. This tag displays a message and should go on top of everything else on the page (including the transparency layer). The thing is this message div tag also falls behind the applet or the applet's parent div tag. Any ideas what I can do to get the applet and it's parent div tag to go behind the transparency layer and the message div? Thanks in advance for any help.

And the million dollar question: What browser[s] are we talking about here?

IE 8. Is it true you cannot layer a div with complete success over a applet?

You probably have to do the iframe shim technique like we had to do in IE6.

iframe shim technique? Would you happen to have a decent link on that? Thanks Eric.

Place whatever you want to occlude the background in an iframe. Gaggable.
