CSS Overlays

Hello, I have an html file on which I use very simple css overlay feature. I wish to use this feature to display certain educational material while allowing the reader to remain right there on the part he was reading. I implemented one with ePub but it only works on one of the pages (cause that's where the div is located). Can this be done on kindle? Also does anyone know how to implement an overlay on everypage dynamically?

Thanks!

AFAIK, if at all, this can only be done in fixed layout Kindle books (KF8/AZW3), which support popups, however, it's a major PITA to properly code them.

For more information see the Amazon KF8 page and the Kindle Publishing Guidelines.

I take it fixed layout means that its not "reflowable"?
