    Z-Index Bug

    HowardF
      I have created a popup menu with Fireworks CS3. When I do the browser check with Dreamweaver CS3 I get a Z-Index Bug error message that reads

      Positioned containers define a new stacking order, even when the computed z-index of the container is auto. This can cause positioned children of the container to appear above other positioned elements on the page when they should not.

      Affects: Internet Explorer 6.0, 7.0
      Likelihood: Likely

      How can I fix this?

          Are you having a problem, or are you just worried about this warning (it's
          not an error message)?

          Really, the best bet would not be to use the FW pop-up menus, which,
          although much better than previous incarnations, are still not optimal.

          Check the uberlink and MacFly tutorials at PVII -

          and the Navbar tutorial/articles at Thierry's place

          Or this one (more recent article):
