Hello smile.gif My name is Beth.

I was given the difficult task of creating a website for a company I work very close with and I'm running into all sorts of coding problems. I know these can't be that insane but I've been spinning my wheels on these issues for 2 weeks now and I'm almost out of time.

I know it's not much but I will paypal $50 to the person that solves my problem (that is if its not against board policy) i just NEED help so bad!

Here is where my demo page is for the new website. It's one page, no links to anything else...

URL: http://www.srh.com/taxgirl/index.htm

The page is supposed to look kinda link this...

IPB Image

The problems are:

1.) The drop down navigation has issues displaying over the flash animation sometimes flashing above it but it seems like it naturally wants to be below it.

2.) When you hoover over the navigation the buttons disappear, this might be due to the same problem as #1 but I don't know... :confused:

3.) the two columns need to fill down as either one has content. what i mean by this is that if the column on the right has 800pxs of content and the left only has 300px it should still extend 100% with the growth of the right column.



Any advice anyone has on this kind of layout I would appreciate massively.. but honestly, I'm so out of time I'd absolutely be ecstatic over a solution. Like I said, I have $50 to offer for help. Please look into your hearts and minds to help!


Thank you so so much.

~beth.
