    Looking for way to overcome compatibility issue

    paulkirtley Level 1
      I would REALLY appreciate help with this. If you look at this link: http://www.pk-co.com/stpeters.html
      ...you will notice the pop-up menu of the lefthand navigation pane is tucked under the .swf file which runs in the large righthand cell. Other pages do not seem to have this problem. It is as if the .swf file is on a top layer. Thanks!

      I've been told that active content like Flash will always be on top. This menu looks great on my computer, but I've been told it doesn't work without JavaScript, which makes my site almost useless for people who have JS disabled or not available at all.

      How do I get a Fireworks menu that looks and works like this without the compatibility issues?
      You should fix that.

          You can't. As described on the DW forum, you'd need to a) move either the
          menu or the SWF so that they don't collide (or *try* the wmode fix described
          here - http://www.projectseven.com/support/answers.asp?id=127, and b) make a
          menu where all top-level links go to a subordinate page that contains the
          submenu links.
