The main page of planet-rugby has a menu bar (just under the ads at the top of
the window). Hover the mouse over any item and a drop-down list of choices
appears. However the rightmost pair of items drop down behind the panel beneath
them.

BTW: I'm using tabbed browsing.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open planet-rugby.com
2.Move mouse across the green menu bar
3.

Actual Results:  
right most menus appear behind other page content and some options cannot be
selected.

Expected Results:  
Menus to appear on top of other page content
This needs a minimal testcase...

Testcase

The menu items all have z-index:1, but the block that appears above them has a
z-index of 500. Therefore they appear under it.

For some reason, IE ignores the z-index:500 of the yellow block. See testcase
for reasons.

Maybe obvious, but just to be sure, the green element appears _above_ the yellow
one in IE.
Ah, ok.  So this is just a bug in IE -- it establishes a local stacking context
for the relatively positioned auto-z-index parent, looks like, which is wrong.

Over to evangelism; Mozilla's rendering here is correct.
