I'am using javascript and css to create a drop down "navigation menu".

however when the drop down menu comes over a text input field, the drop down gets blocked as in, the drop down does not hover over the text box.

How do i solve this. If this not a known issue, i can put the code snippet im using to create the drop down.

thanks

Most browsers do not have problem with text field, but have problems with a select element. The solution is to place an iframe under the layer. How to implement it really depends on the code that exists.
