    How is this done??

    Web_Maven
      I have tried this before. But on the Adobe homepage they have a Flash animation and a HTML menu drops down over it. The only way I was able to get the two to work together was the swap out my flash with a still image.

      Also is it my system or now with every flash a highlight box surrounds the Flash and you now have to click once to active the Flash. If this is the new way this is a problem. It happens a work and at home.

          IE only... this is because of the eolas patent suit. There are
          workarounds... evidently not everyone is using them yet.

          As for the menus on top of the Flash content - this technote should get you

            I am not sure what transparent background in flash has to do with the menu. Unless there is some type of masking and when you mouse of the mask lets the background show through? which is your menu?

              Well does not make much sense, doesn't ? But in fact it has ALL to do with it.
              Flash as Active content run in browser by using plugins or activeX controls, always,
              by default will appear on top. The only way of forcing other content to appear above
              flash is with help from WMODE which happen to be the Background transparency
              parameter. Don't ask me why, but that is the way to go around it.
