I want to have a portion of my page float beyond the boundaries of a panel, I'm achieving this by assigning a negative top margin (I want it to float a bit above).

The content appears, but gets truncated by extJS on render for any portion extending beyond the div's containing the panel. I've traced this down to the overflow: hidden as part of the various x-<obj> css properties. I've tried various css overrides on my own stylesheets, by using the !important flag..

Any ideas?
