          As you've guessed, it probably has something to do with the code. Can
          you guess what the code experts might need to see in order to help you?

          Please supply a link to the page.

            Without intending judgment, it's characteristic of these properties that one
            would ask this question -

            If you want to use Flash for navigation, consider this -

            1. Some people don't have Flash installed - what do they do?
            2. Search engines don't parse Flash links - your site will not be spidered
            3. Screen assistive devices don't parse Flash links - what will those users
            do?
            4. DW cannot maintain links within a Flash movie, so if you move or rename
            a linked file, your navigation will break - what will you do?

            It's usually a very bad idea for these reasons...

            Furthermore, Adobe agrees - Flash Text/Buttons have been removed from DW
            CS4.

            Just use graphic buttons, or CSS styled text.
