    Funny. Most people look for ways to kill them.

    Floating Flash Movies

    Hi! I think this is what you're looking for. I didn't write the instructions. I found the post in another forum ...

    *** Preparing the HTML page to make the Flash movie transparent ***
    Three methods of creating an HTML page with the correct code are outlined below.

    * Publishing from Flash *
    The HTML for a Flash movie can be created using the Publish Settings feature in Flash. The Publish Settings dialog box provides an option to affect the WMODE setting. The options selected in the Publish Settings will be added to the HTML source code automatically:

    1 Choose File > Publish Settings. Select the HTML tab.

    2 Choose "Transparent" in the WMODE setting to make the Flash movie's background disappear in browsers which support this feature.

    3 Publish the document.

    4 The swf is then located in Program files>macromedia>Flash MX (in my case)


    * Using Dreamweaver MX *

    Follow the below steps, and Dreamweaver MX will insert the correct HTML code automatically.

    1 In Dreamweaver MX, insert the Flash movie into an HTML page. I drew a layer on top of the webpage I had then inserted the movie there.

    2 Select the Flash movie in the Design View.

    3 In the Properties panel, choose Parameters.

    4 For the Parameter, enter "wmode" (without quotes).

    For the Value, enter "transparent".

    5 Save the document. The HTML page is complete.


    * Editing HTML code manually *
    To edit an existing HTML page, add the WMODE parameters to the HTML code.

    Add the following parameter to the OBJECT tag:

    <param name="wmode" value="transparent">

    Add the following parameter to the EMBED tag:

    wmode="transparent"
    >>> ComponentUser <<<
