It's not clear to me what you are trying to accomplish. Was my earlier
suggestion off the mark from what you are looking for? If you are using CSS
positioned DIVs they can be placed anywhere on your page, including
overlapping other objects. You can "nest" DIVs like this:

<div id="parentDiv"
 style="position:absolute; top:10px; left:0px; visibility:visible;">
	<div id="childDiv1" 
	 style="position:relative; top:0px; left:0px; visibility:inherit;">

	<div id="childDiv2"
	 style="position:relative; top:0px; left:0px; visibility:inherit;">


The "parentDiv" can be absolutely positioned while "childDiv1" and
"childDiv2" can be positioned relative to the parent and visibility can be
inherited from the parent.

Is that what you're looking for?
