Hi, I'm not sure that it is bug or not but I сould not setup Highcharts in styled mode to get expected behaviour:

Expected behaviour

Marker halo appears behind the point marker:

Hi @proteamer

Thank you for reporting this bug. I think you are right, it's wrong zIndex which is applied only in classic version, but should be available in both classic and and styled modes.


  plotOptions: {
    series: {
      point: {
        events: {
          mouseOver: function() {
            if (this.series.halo) {
                // Apply zIndex manually
                zIndex: -1

Internal note:
Related lines:

/*= if (build.classic) { =*/
'fill': point.color || series.color,
'fill-opacity': haloOptions.opacity,
'zIndex': -1 // #4929, IE8 added halo above everything
}, haloOptions.attributes));
/*= } =*/
