Microsoft's Internet Explorer triggers popup blocker when
using the legit target="_blank" link in flash (via html inside
Flash) when embedded using wmode = transparent. Tested on IE 6 and
7 on windows xp home and pro - with standard default settings.
Embed has allowscript always.
If you use wmode = anything else, the popup blocker is not
Regular mc's with getUrl w/ "_blank" does not trigger popup
Ive searched a lot of forums here, on adobe and across the
web and haven't seen a) Adobe describe this exact
"wmode=transparent" issue and b) nowhere have i seen it be solved.
re: the adobe staff suggested solution (the link above): we
had tried that, works for regular buttons but html/text links still
dependent which doesn't work for viral flash widgets.
