Thanks Greg

I think you're right. I might add a request to the bug tracker that 
master pages can allow showing objects above , say as an option, as I 
think it would be handy. In our case, we have lots of pictures with 
different transparencies, near to the logo that makes up the header on 
the master page. But these transparent objects are obscuring the logo 
which as to be underneath if we use master pages.
