question about native form elements and layers (divs).  will the native
elements still have the highest z index so that divs will always lie under
them?  this is the behavior seen in the current navigator versions.  it would
be great if native elements (<!-- <FORM><INPUT TYPE=text></FORM> -->) could be
placed underneath divs (layers).

i would appreciate a response since a lot of oracle crm applications are using
dhtml.

This was opened on 8/24 so it is a mystery why I'm just now getting it.

It is planned that ALL HTML form elements will obey z-index when intermixed with
other HTML elements.

Currently:
Buttons, checkboxes, and radio buttons honor z-index.
Listboxes honor z-index, but their scrollbars do not.
Text fields and text areas, do not honor z-index yet.

kmcclusk, by marking this resolved fixed, is it safe to assume that listbox
scrollbars, text fields, and textareas all honor z-index?

I think I marked it fixed because I answered the question and I all of the 
remaining issues to support z-index are covered by other bugs. We could open a 
new bug for the remaining issues and add dependencies, but the bug would be 
completely solved when gfx-scrollbars are used everywhere and text fields no 
longer use native-widgets.
