[thelist] Frame Order ( or is it?)

I'm a bit puzzled what you are actually trying to do here. Can you explain
more clearly? And provide a link to your (broken) page if possible? That
would be useful for people trying to help you.

Some comments on what I *think* you are trying to do:

1. If you are trying to implement a drop-down menu in css/javascript, then
my advice is to forget the framesets idea altogether, and put it all on one
page. This keeps it simple. The suckerfish dropdown menu is free and works
great [0]. 

2. Content on separate frames will never overlap, whatever you do with index
or z-order or anything else. You can relate to them as separate windows: you
can't get content in one to overlap the content of another.

3. The z-order property affects the layout order of components on a single
document, within one frame. It doesn't apply to to frames or framesets. I'm
not sure what "-index" property you are referring to.

Hope this helps.
