    SWF Covering Spry menu

    jfkweb Level 1
      Hi,

      Thanks for viewing. I have a spry menu that is being hidden by a swf, I've set the z-index on them so they should be in the right order but 'nothing'. Also tried converting page to 'strict' but made no difference. Any suggestions very welcome. Page is fine in Safari and FF. Link is : www.bingbangbosh.ie/louyoga
      Thanks

          It's not a z-index issue if you don't have any positioning there. And
          changing the doctype won't do anything for you except tell the validator how
          to validate the page.

          All Active content on a page will always rise to the top, so to speak,
          including Flash, certain form elements, Java applets, and Active X controls.
          This means that each of these will poke through layers. There is not a good
          cross-browser/platform reliable way to solve this issue, but if you can be
          confident in your visitors using IE 5+ or NN6+, then you can use the Flash
          wmode parameter (however, Safari does not support this properly!).
