Well it is fixed! Silly me. Fix the background images of each panel to the panel with position absolute. Make the background images taller to fit the new height – use transparency on the bottom portion (the below the slider part) so the text will look like its below the slider…even though it is not! Removed the borders of the slider from the css. Changed the height of the slider to be taller so the text below what looks like the slider will fit with no worries of over flow. My creative director who does not know css figured it!
