    constantly moving background

    'ello all...

    Here's the dilly:

    My boss wants a background for his website that has a constantly moving background. I know that I need a movie clip for this, right? But the issue is that it needs to be really subtle, I want it to look the the Northern lights....

    anyone have any ideas? I know you all are big smarty-pants...

    flash and css

    you could (i think) using css layers...

    create an HTML document with a div having 100% height and width, & 0% left and top coordinates and a z-index of 1. then another div with the same attributes only a z-indez of 2 & a transparent background.

    then on the first layer put your.swf or animated.gif and on the second layer your page content.

    youd have to hammer out the css but it should work pretty ell with some tweaking (i think). ive used it with text and images over an image. i dont see why it wouldnt work with FLASH.

    as for smarty pants...

    only GIF

    the above technique only works if you publish to animated GIF.
    the investigation continues...
