July 8, 2012

IE6 ignores z-index on selects and puts it above everything else. This is annoying when you have a drop down mega menu that needs to cover a form and you need to support IE6.

There is this jquery plugin magically fixes this with some magic involving an iframe:

Include the jquery plugin and then target the floating div in the menu that needs to float over the select. e.g. jQuery(‘div.sub’).bgiframe();
