proasp_codeclinic thread: Combo Box on top of Dynamic Menu

Message #1 by "Deborah Kopp" <DKopp@f...> on Mon, 19 Nov 2001 16:14:22

We have exactly the same problem. This appears to be a bug in IE. 
We can recreate in IE5 with Win98,Win2k and IE6 on WinXP.
It only happens for us where we have a div on top of a select tag.

We scoured the web for an answer to this and according to MS it is by 
design in other words a bug which they have no intention of fixing!

If you do find an answer I would appreciate to hear as well.
