Subject: Re: FLASH: Transparent background possible?

The transparent background only works in IE (4+ I think), and it requires a
"Transparent Windowless" Window Mode setting in the HTML tab of your publish
settings...or just the code in the Object/Embed tags.

Going back to the original post, you *can* get the background to line up if you put
it in Flash...I've done it with other things like Java applets and such and it does
work across browsers/platforms. It's just a matter of taking away all the
browser-dependent variables in the browser window. For Example, set MARGINHEIGHT=0
MARGINWIDTH=0 LEFTMARGIN=0 TOPMARGIN=0, then use a table and spacer GIFs to
precisely position the SWF.
