All seasoned Windows developers will tell you...

In the Windows OS, there are "windowed" and "windowless" controls. The Option and Listbox controls that are drawn on the browser window, are "windowed" controls. All the remaining controls are "windowless". You cannot place a "windowless" object (ie: html object, etc) above the zOrder of a "windowed" control. FACT!!!

You can run a script that will hide these controls and displays them after the tooltip/menu is gone as follows...

sub showWindowObjects(bShow)
    dim objSelect
    dim colSelects
    set colSelects = window.document.all.tags("SELECT")
    for each objSelect in colSelects
        if bShow then
            objSelect.style.visibility = "visible"
        else
            objSelect.style.visibility = "hidden"
        end if
    next set
    colSelects = nothing
end sub

Hope this helps...

Anyone have a problem with the tooltip being overlaid with a <select> object that happens to be in its way?  Is this an IE bug?  Any solution?
