Here is what i would like to do.  I want to put in a flash movie.  The problem comes when I try and add text into the html source I can't write over the flash movie.  Is their any way to get both text or movies behind a flash movie.  I have made the flash movie transparent.  But I would like to get both text and pictures in the background of the flash program.

Alright, here we go:

Your HTML must look simulair like this:

<body>
<div id="Text" STYLE="position:absolute; top:0; left:0;">

<h1>PUT YOUR TEXT HERE!<p>
    PUT YOUR TEXT HERE!<p>
    PUT YOUR TEXT HERE!<p>
    PUT YOUR TEXT HERE!<p>
    PUT YOUR TEXT HERE!<p>
    PUT YOUR TEXT HERE!<p></h1>
</div>

<div id="Flash" STYLE=" position:absolute; width:100%; height:100%; top:0; left:0; ">
            <OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
                   codebase="http://active.macromedia.com/flash2/cabs/swflash.cab#version=4,0,0,0"
                   ID=Curtain2 WIDTH=100% HEIGHT=100%>
                   <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="FlashMovie.swf"> <PARAM NAME=loop VALUE=false> <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high> <PARAM NAME=wmode VALUE=transparent> <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF> <EMBED src="Curtain.swf" loop=false quality=high wmode=transparent bgcolor=#FFFFFF  WIDTH=100% HEIGHT=100% TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></EMBED>
</OBJECT>
</div>

</body>

The code between the second <div> tags is the code Flash generates on  your HTML-page.

Goodluck, and thanks for the points last time (transparent Flashfile)

Sorry isilver, I forgot to tell you that you don't have 'active HTML' (Can't click url's) behind the flash, Therefore you have let the flash disappear. When you want so, just ask for it. I've the solution for it.
