I've been hit by the wmode issue with IFrames, when tested an application on Linux which floats a PDF over my Flex.
The main reason that it work in Firefox on Linux was that there wasn't any support at the Firefox end, so there was no point in adding the feature... but it looks like Firefox contributors have finished the work needed in the last couple of weeks!:
So hopefully we'll be seeing from platform floating IFrame support.
There was also a pretty hardcore hack someone noticed Google were using which lets you float HTML content over Flash even on Linux, did you ever come across that? If not and you can't find it, I'll try and dig out a link.
Floating IFrames floats my boat, provided it can produce consistant results across all platforms.
There is an issue with dot pitch on windows though... try changing the DPI and see where the lovingly position frame ends up!
That is great to hear about firefox and wmode. I'll see if I can find that google hack. For IE I ended up removing wmode=opaque so Jaws would work. The only issue is sometimes the html iframe disappears when you click the Flash app, but not always.
I guess the point on this thread is Adobe really should address this with the flex/flash player product and allow for URL/IFrame integration w/out all the hacks/fighting the product that currently needs to be done,
Just found that link where the hack Google used is dissected:
I personally haven't used it , as the project I was working is for our intranet, and I'm the only one using Linux at the moment, so it was more of an annoyance than a major issue for me
