    Hell-O Everyone

    I finally started to built our music band site (www.decent.fr.fm). I try to do it the best I can (so don't laugh if you visit it). However I know thanks to an interactivity tutorial that it is possible to publish a transparent movie background so you could see the html background.

    The tutorial says : just put this code line between your HTML tags <param name="wmode" value="transparent"> That's what I do and it doesn't work at all ??

    I tried to join the tutorial publisher but he do not answer.
    Can someone help me please ?

    Thanks

    Are you trying to view it using NN? That tag only works for IE. The code should look like:

    <OBJECT classid="blah blah">
    <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="something.swf">
    <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
    <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#666666>
    <PARAM NAME="wmode" value="transparent">
    <EMBED the embed information></EMBED>
    </OBJECT>


    You will need to modify the published HTML page. If it still does not work make sure you have the latest flash plugin, etc...

    Hope that helps

    Thanks Gary for answering so quickly.

    I use IE 5.5 to view my html pages and it doesn't work
    I also download the latest Flash plug in

    I guess the problem is what you call a publish HTML page.
    Where should I wrote it ? In the HTML web pages or in the Publish HTML Flash settings ? If it is the second, how could I then import the file in my page ?

    Thanks.
