    Space around embedded flash file(No, not the focusrect)

    Hey guys.

    Browsers seem to compile space around an embedded object, making it impossible to surround it with images, unless you set a table with the same background as the image to go around the whitespace.

    Im looking for a way to get rid of it.


    It looks something like this: middle being the flash file:

    ________________________On top is image 1
    image2 on the leftimage 3 on the right
    ________________________image4 on the bottom

    meaning these are not just a maroon background


    Firebird and IE really contradict each other as well, meaning if it'll work in IE...it aint gonna work in firebird and vice versa.

    Any solutions?...Suggestions?...

    Tables with no cellpaddiing and no cellspacing should do the trick.
    You can also set an image to the bg of a table. Not embedding the graphic inside the tablecell.

    Not quite clear what talking about tho. Got anything online?

    You could publish the swf transparent windowless. But it mite not work well in netscape or whatever.

    I am using a table currently with no cellpadding/cellspacing.

    Nothing seems to work, and I dont see what making it transparent would do - it would still create the borders around the embedded object.

    I did get it to work(for some reason my post didnt show ) though, by just playing around with the align commands, table backgrounds, the works. Created over 10 files in the end...one working in firebird and not in IE, and of course, vice versa.

    Finally, it just worked. Both browsers.

    I AM SO ****ING HAPPY!

    By *worked* I meant I made it work, by setting spacers here, adjusting width of a table there. This wasnt fast, 3+ hours of work at least just ****ing around with HTML.

    Worth it though, and made the deadline for the countdown .
