Floating Div over a Table

P: n/a
Hi!

How can I make a Div to float over several cells of a table?
As an example imagine a chess board as table. Now a rectangle (div)
shall lie over 6 fields, for example A2-B4 (A2,A3,A4,B2,B3,B4).
How can I do this using HTML and if necessary java script.

Thanks

Look into absolute positioning and the z-index property.

That's what I get from not posting from Opera, where I have my signature
stored. I posted from Firefox. The real URL is
