I am using a variant of Eric Meyers popup CSS technique on elements of a
table. Each element consists of a small status image which pops up a
message when the mouse hovers over it. The images are close together.
It works fine in Firefox, essentially the only thing I had to modify with
Meyer's CSS was to add a z-index to ensure the popup was at the front.
Internet Explorer seems to disregard the z-index and shows neighbouring
images through the popup.
Has anyone any clue how I get around what seems to be yet another bug in IE?

Another workaround, is to have the real images as background-images,
and use transparent images in the front to set off the popup on hover.
