    drop down menu is dropping behind pic

    dryhumor1
      Greetings,
      Updating my web site and have about 100hrs use with dreamweaver. I inserted the spry menu drop down bar and its acting like there is a stacking order problem with the image under it. The menu actually drops down behind the image of my company logo. Don't have a clue how to change this and would appreciate the help. Also would be happy to hear comments on the layout.

      Oh.. and since its graphics heavy would be like to hear feedback on load times for the page.

      www.aabrite.com is the web site.

      Thanks Much.

          It's at least 5x heavier than you'd want it to be at nearly 500K -

          13.4K 1 HTML/Text
          484.2K 24 Images
          497.6K Total size
          25 HTTP requests

          You have no alt attributes on your images.

          Having used absolute positioning exclusively to build the page, you will
          have all of the problems associated with this decision (try resizing your
          text in the browser).

          I don't see a Spry menu bar on that page (or any other page).

          You have used spaces in your file naming system - Bottom Block 705px.jpg -
          that's a bad idea.

          So what's up with this?

            There is no spry menu on the page.

              Is that your web site - ie you're a painter by trade and built the site to
              promote your business - or are you a web developer that built this site for
              a client? There's a few problems with the site but to get best advice I
              think we'd need to know what you want to achieve here.

              Cheers,
              Jon
