    I just tested my site on a mac with IE and it looks like transparency is not supported. Instead of changing the background colors in all my flash movies, I just set them to transparent (with the wmode="transparent" in embed tag) and the color of the HTML page shows through. Does anyone know if this is a known issue? I'm not sure what IE version it was.

    If you want to see it, it's at http://www.frankpayne.com/ If you see a big white square around the spinning ring, this is what I'm talking about. If everything looks normal and the background around the ring is gray then it's fine. Thanks,

    It's not the mac flash plugin, it's because it's an PC IE specific tag which microsoft failed to include in the Mac browser. The tag doesn't work in netscape on any platform either...
