<object height=150>
</object>
<div style="position:relative;top:-150;">
A whole load of text
</div>
The rest of the text.



This should work in both IE4 and NS4. I have only included in the object tag that which is important to the example (the height which is the same as the negative offset of the overlaid text).

I have not tested this but it look like what I have already.  The problem is that the layer with the text, which I want to see "on top" of the layer with the flash movie is not showing. Can You tell why? I've set the z-index of the layer and all that but it still is not visible!

This is probably the same stuff when trying to put a div in front of a select box or a textarea.

The only solution I found to this is to create the div as a scriptlet thus giving it equal footage w/ the flash (which is not really DHTML component.

Looks like any Active X controls will be displayed in front of any DHTML divs.

you can make the background of the div transparent, but it only works in IE4..it is buggy in Netscape4
use CSS....background-color: transparent
