    a simple <center> </center> tag should do the trick before and after the <object> tags.


    try http://www.moock.org for some great swf resizing scripts.

    bah, just open the html that flash published in note pad and before the first <object> tag put <center>
    and after the </object> tag put </center>

    http://www.draac.com is a good place for html basics.

    dzine told you how to do it

    the idea is that you need to edit the html not the flash in any way.

    just write click on the html file that includes your flash and choose open with notepad then do what dzine suggested.

    like D said. you view the html via Internet Explorerer (iexplore.exe) and then you click Edit w/ Notepad. should have a notebook icon on your IE browswer.

    btw, you don't preload html. you preload your flash *.swf files.

    hope that helps

    though nowadays you should use <div align='center'>your embed html here</div>

    lol

    Ok I dont have internet explorer gerbick. Ok? I am not as advanced as you. I am not as rich. Just because you contract at a higher rate for the government doesnt mean you can boss me around ok? I use mozilla. Or some old school browser from 1994.

    ok guys this is getting way to complicated for me. I cant preload HTML? What kind of crap is that?

    boss? man, look. I can't help it because you got some junk contract, and the way it sounds, some junk computer.

    best thing to do visionray, delete this thread and post it in general help, you should get a quick reply

    in the meantime search the archives for similar threads. There have been many questions on this topic and should be lots of good answers.

    if you want to center it on the page, not just top/middle but middle/middle then you're probably going to have to use frames...

    no need to make fun of your computer. any slower, it'll prob be like your grandfather, dead too.

    coffee gopher? bleh. probably that cheap, second rate coffee they give to the underlings. like you.

    and I won't say a thing about your... dare I say, education. ITT indeed - idiots trying technology
