No the earlier suggestion worked really well...

Let me explain..
I am trying to add drop down menus to an existing site navigation.
So I developed the menus on thier own page..they work great.
I am now trying to position the menu on an existing site inside a <td></td>.

I thought that nesting all of menu <div> s inside one container <div> might
do the trick.
I have tried a few different options--I have either successfully positioned
the menu which
then seems to throw off the positioning of the drop down menus or the drop
down menus work fine but i am unable to 
To position the main menu properly.

Please see the following page...

Thanks Malcolm

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?
