Hi Matt,

Some Old Lush? Song Of Love? I don't think so.

Why not float the form as well? Here try this:


<div id="forming" style="position:absolute; top:100px; left:100px;
visibility:visible; z-index:1;">
<form name="myform">
<input type="button" name="mybutton" value="Click Me"><br>
<input type="text" name="mytext" value="word box">

<div id="overlay" style="position:absolute; top:110px; left:155px;
visibility:visible; z-index:2;">
<table width="300" height="200" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"
bgcolor="#dd3355" border="1">
<tr><td align="center" valign="middle"><h1>Overlay</h1></td></tr></table>


Good Luck.
