thelist, See: http://mwarden.f2o.org/zindex.png Yes, they look like select boxes, but trust me, they are text boxes with a cleverly-placed background image. The "drop down" portion is a div. So, this is not the well-known select/iframe bug in IE. I cannot reproduce this issue on any browser except IE 6.0.2800.1106. I have IE 6.0.2900.2180 on my laptop and the issue is not present. Who cares, right? Well, unfortunately, the former version is the version used by my client (my client is a particular state of the Union, so let's avoid entertaining ideas of little ol' me getting them to change their state-wide standard browser). Has anyone seen this before -- a text box bleeding through a div? Could this be caused by equal z-index values? Another issue? I could show the CSS, but since I have narrowed this down to a specific build of IE6, I doubt it is an issue with the CSS. So, I'm mostly looking for info on a browser bug (searching for "IE CSS bug" on google returns a few too many results to sift through efficiently).go -- Matt Warden Cleveland, OH, USA http://mattwarden.com This email proudly and graciously contributes to entropy.
