Overlay swf on gif

I have a sliced, tabled, gif-based menu (via FW MX) that i'd like to overlay a logo .swf on top of. Is there a reliable way to do and & be sure it holds correct position at various screen sizes? IE only.

Put your Flash <object> definition into a layer <div> tag, where you can position it exactly (from the top-left).  Also add wmode="transparent" to the <object> params, and the <embed> tag, which will allow the gifs to show through the back of your movie.

If your gif's are centered then you might need to use a behaviour to attach the layer to one of the gifs for when the window is resized "Snap Layers" by Studio VII, for Dreamweaver is a good one for this
Muso is correct in this, one thing to note though is I've seen inconsistent behavior between browsers in rendering this, particularly with Netscape/Mozilla browsers.  So basically just a note to test thoroughly to make sure it still looks consistent.
