Drop down Menu / Flash level issues

techtherapy
P: 13
Hello everyone. Not sure if I should be posting in the javascript forum, the flash forum, or this one since the problem deals with all three!

So my issue is this: My company is updating a homepage on a site that uses mm_menu.js drop down menus and we have a flash object that will be sitting virtually underneath a few o these drop downs. Everything seems to work fine except in IE6 & 7 Where the drop down appears behind the flash! Obviously not where you want the links to end up!

So I researched and research and tried various different approaches. I played with the z-index of the two elements- trying to bring the drop down in front of the div the flash is in. Nothing. I also found posts that had this fix suggested: adding in the code <param name="wmode" value="transparent"> in the list of flash parameters and wmode="transparent" in the embed section. This also does nothing!

I've looked and looked and no solution presented itself so I humbly request the help of the fantastic users of this forum (I figure a little flattery doesn't hurt!).

The page I have issue with can be found here:

and the css (which looks like some monkey typed it) here:

as well as the js here:
http://baby-energy.com/mm_menu.js
and here:

Anything, and I mean anything would be helpful! Thanks!

Unfortunately placing alt tags on this test page didn't really help the issue out at all- Luckily I reposted this in the javascript forum and received some helpful suggestions- but I appreciate the reply anyway!
