define context menus out of leftContent container
Description of problem:
There are 2 issues with menu rendering but both share the same underlying cause:
1) The right pane can cover the context menu - exhibited in FF2 and IE6
2) The resource tree "jumps down" when context menu appears for the first time - exhibited in IE6, IE7, IE8
The fix is to move the context menu definitions up the DOM tree out of the leftContent container. The attached patch does that.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on the left nav tree in any of the above mentioned browsers
Context menu appears but has problems described above.
The context menu should always appear on top of all other page elements and should not cause the nav tree to change position.

context menu hidden behind the right pane in IE6
The first issue can be worked around by dragging the left nav wider and the second issue is disconcerting but does not have a functional impact. Dropping priority
