      I am trying to use a layout and a menu from YUI.

      I had the menu working almost how I wanted it, but I was using a
      manual layout and it wasn't really working like I wanted.

      I added in a layout (top, left, center and bottom) assigning them to
      existing elements.

      Now my background doesn't show in the top, left or center sections
      (which are the three elements I had defined in code before) and I
      can't figure out where that cream type color is set to be able to
      change it back to how I want it (fixed BG that spans for top, center
      and bottom and doesn't scroll when the content does).

      can someone point me to where in the layout.css, skin.css or menu.css
      I need to change to fix this?

      Also, the menus now flyout BEHIND the content area, any suggestions
      on that would be appreciated as well.

      Thank you.

        As for the colors, try this:

        .yui-skin-sam .yui-layout .yui-layout-unit div.yui-layout-bd {
        background-color: transparent;
        }


        .yui-skin-sam .yui-layout {
        background-color:transparent;
        }
        Does that help?

        Thanks! That took care of the image problem and I should be ale to use that to get rid of the borders. Going to look at the menu example here shortly.

            Dav,

            That helped, but I am using a regular menu not a menubar.

            And from what I understand, thre is a zindex Configuration Property,
            but it is not applied for a static menu.

            I have set the zindex of the layout unit to 1, but the menus are still
            opening behind the content.

            I am going to try setting it in the config property, but I am not
            expecting it to work.
