    Question

    This is my problem. I have a menu bar on the side of my webpage and I want to make part of it in flash. So what I have is a flash movie with html images above and below it. Looks great in IE but there's a white space below it in Netscape. I tried publishing the flash movie with no borders, 100%, match movie..everything. I even put it in a html table to be the correct size, didnt work! Is this just a netscape thing? or is there something I missed? PLEASE HELP...thanks in advance

    Sorry, I don't have a way to post it right now....But maybe this wil clear it up.

    I have a blank HTML page. Say I have a table with 3 rows, 1 cell in each row. The top cell has a graphic and the bottom row has a graphic. I then make a flash movie and put it in the middle cell. The flash movie size is the same number of pixels width and height, as the HTML cell. I then look at it in IE and it looks great. In netscape it drops the third graphic down about a quarter inch from the flash movie. (LEAVING A LITTLE WHITE SPACE when it should be flush). What do you think...maybe try it out for yourself. I'm always good for finding those things that people havent experienced yet. Thnaks

    yeah...you are right, I test your problem and it really have a white space there.

    I try almost every trick i can think of to get rid of the white space but it still there in netscape(IE look perfect).

    There are the things i try,
    1. declare every vspace/hspace of the movie/grahic as zero
    2. specify the exact height of the table and every cell.
    3. declare the 3rd cell verticle alignment as top.

    but all these doesn't work. Maybe it is some bug in the netscape alignment issue.

    if you find out how to get rid of it, i would like to know.

    The only work around I can find is to make the cell background color the same as the swf. This will at least make the color flush with the next item in the table. Regards, Bill

    Like I said before, I'm good for finding new bug topics to work on. I'm going to keep working on it also. If anyone else solves the problem, please let all of us know. Good luck
