We all know that IE is full of bugs and just plain sucks as a browser… if you didn’t know that you can drop your geek badge off on the way out. So today I ran across the Z-Index bug in IE7.
Sometimes you’ve seen this behavior before: ![Screen shot 2010-05-13 at 12.15.21 PM.png](images/Screen shot 2010-05-13 at 12_15_21 PM.png)
The fix is to give the parent of the element with a z-index a slightly higher z-index
<div style="z-index: 1000;"> <div style="z-index: 999;">Content Here</div> </div>
Did this help you out? It took me a few days to piece together all this information together, I hope this saves you some time (who knows, maybe the future me will be thankful I wrote this down). Let me know your thoughts. email@example.com
