Here are links to two web pages.
The first is a mouseover effect, on top of a solid color square, on top of a tiled background. It works fine.
The second is an attempt to put the same mouseover effect on top of a Java applet, on top of the same tiled background. (I shifted the positioning of the applet so you can see how it's running on top of the mouseover effect) I tried to use the z-index but I can't get the applet behind the mouseover effect. I also tied to use an <iframe> fix, but couldn't get it to work.
Can anyone explain how to solve this problem?
You guys are great.
Whoa!! No answer for 5 months. So, it's time to put someone's pain to rest. I stumpled upon this when Google surfing 'cause I have this same problem. So, here's the answer. It can't be done. Best answers is found below where I found them from Google surfing at the same time.
layers on top of Java applets
Thanks for the response.
I did get it to work in IE by using iframes. Here's an example:
But it doesn't look right in Firefox. I think IE handles iframes much better than Firefox.
