If you wanted to play flash intro inside index.html then do following things

Publish your intro.fla file so that you will get intro.swf file and intro.html file.

Open intro.html file in notepade copy code from "<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-....." till "</object>" and paste where you wanted to call in index.html .

See need to copy only part starts and ends with object like as bellow part(your params may be different than this)

<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0"
 WIDTH="100%" HEIGHT="100%" id="NewHISD0717" ALIGN="">
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="intro.swf">
<PARAM NAME=loop VALUE=false>
<PARAM NAME=menu VALUE=false>
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
<PARAM NAME=scale VALUE=exactfit>
<PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF>
<EMBED src="intro.swf" loop=false menu=false quality=high scale=exactfit bgcolor=#FFFFFF  WIDTH="100%" HEIGHT="100%" NAME="Intro" ALIGN=""
 TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></EMBED>
</OBJECT>

Thanks for the reminder, RD. Unfortunately, we have yet been unable to figure out how to do it.

index.htm is the home page when you go to the web. When we try to insert it there, it messes up the page; inserting it anywhere else is worthless because it won't play when the get to the home page.

We're still working on using the code, though. We've been on vacation the past 8 days.

Back to work. :(
