I've been researching and experimenting using javascript (flash methods) to send frame commands to a Flash movie with good results.... i.e:

function sendData() {

Real simple, except it seems the javascript object uses either the object or embed tags (depending on the browser) to connect to the flash movie, and does not work at all in explorer for mac. The limited documentation I've found on the topic mentions this breifly, but I'm not sure when these docs were published. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about this problem or of any recent updates or workarounds. Also, wondering if anyone has any insight on adapting the above script to call the same swf movie when its placed in a neighboring html frame...... Thanks!
