How can I get a JavaScript menu to dropdown on top of an applet. The ones I have always go behind the applets I have loaded on my page.

You should think of an applet is a self containing page in a page. Because of this, the applets behave like they are different objects in html pages. This is the same for flash movies as well. Try using the applet in a div and give it z-index property.
