there *is* a hack.. you turn the visibility of the form element of when
you turn the menu on. If it's the case that it's only ever going to be one
form element (the select box) then this isn't too bad as you can hard code
the element name into your script. But if your DHTML menu is going to
overlap an unknown you're faced with the prospect of cycling
through the form elements and figuring out which need turning off.
And then if the menu only partially overlaps it looks a little funny.

but it can be done.
