Here's a simple problem. Just created a website using Flash MX. Now I can see it perfectly in IE but when others who use Netscape v4 or 6 try to, they get a blank page. So obvious there is a problem with Netscape seeing Flash MX. Want to know if their is a script, article , or something that I missed that can be added to the code that would allow Netscape viewers to see.

It is a different installation for Netscape..if you go to Macromedia and install Flash 6 player with an IE browser..it will install an activeX player. If you do the installation with Netscape you will get a plug-in installation.

If you go to windows Explorer on your machine and go..Program Files/Macromedia/Flash MX/Players..and click the Read Me file.. there is a detailed explanation of this regarding different browsers and OS's.

Sorry it took so long, nut you were right. I had to go to macromedia and install Flash player 6 (not as a plugin but rather an application) on Netscape and puff, I saw my website.
