Unable to make HTML element adjust with the resizing of the browser

Unable to make HTML element adjust with the resizing of the browser

OK. I am pretty new to HTML , javascript, jquery and Adobe captivate.
I have to use captivate at work to build my e-learning courses.
Captivate does not have drop down lists, so I have a javascript application that overlays a Captivate text caption element with a "select" drop down element.
It works to a point. The captivate slide opens with the "select" drop down covering the text caption element.
However, when I resize the browser, all Captivate elements change with the browser, but the "select" drop down remains in the same location.
I need it to follow the text caption element.
So, I opened a debugger and see that the DIV section where the text caption is located is in a DIV section created by Captivate, where the DIV section for the "select" drop down element is in a separate DIV section all together
If I understand HTML correctly, the problem is the "select" drop down element is NOT in the same blocks/frame as the text caption, so it does not move with the browser.

So my question is, how do I get that "select" drop down element to either over write the text caption element or how do I get (trick) the HTML to get the "select" drop down DIV to size with the DIV of the text caption element?
