Flash Input Boxes

I have two "input boxes" on my stage... When I run the swf file using Flash Player I can type in text but when I open the swf file within a HTML file (in browser) it doesn't look like I can type anything... It is like I am locked out? Very strange indeed. Any ideas?

You have to set focus to the flash movie before:

            <script language="JavaScript">
            function fuoco(){
                  var IE = navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft") != -1;
                  var filmato = IE ? window.filmato : window.document.filmato;
      <body onLoad="fuoco()">
                  codebase="[...]" width="400" height="300" ID="filmato">
                  <param name="movie" VALUE="movie.swf">
                  <param name="quality" VALUE="high" />
                  <param name="bgcolor" VALUE="#CCCCCC" />
