multiple suckerfish menus dropdown z-index not working

110 New Member
Hey Gang,

More difficult to describe this than see it, so here's a link which shows the issue I'm having

I've been looking at this for quite a while, and can't figure out why I can't set the dropdown menus to appear above other elements which also have dropdown menus.
I run multiple suckerfish menus on the page, but these somewhat complex ones are the only ones which have issues.

I can't direct you to the proper page, as it is behind logins, but I've taken the code out and created a test page which has the same issue.

The bars represent time durations, which is why they are floating within a div spaced and lengthed within a table cell.

The issue is exactly the same with ie 6/7, firefox & Safari3 on PC I haven't had a chance to test on Mac Yet.

Hopefully this is obvious to those more skilled than me.

This sounds like a frequently asked question, but I didn't find the answer in any faq I've looked at. I have a question about the wisdom of using (javascript generated) dropdown menus. Question: Does google interpret javascript? Or, in other words, are client-side-javascript-generated links invisible to search engines?

Anyone knows if the htmldog suckerfish menu can be done in a more fluid way: http://www.htmldog.com/articles/suckerfish/dropdowns/ Or more precisely, the 2-level menu: http://www.htmldog.com/articles/suckerfish/dropdowns/example/bones2.html In fluid I mean: 1) The width of each drop menu to equal the widest text of any item contained...

I'm using a horizontal CSS-based dropdown menu based on this code: http://www.weblens.org/templates/sample_menu.html Is there a relatively easy way to add a slight delay to the menu with JavaScript, so that when you take the mouse off the sub-menus don't disappear right away?
