if i understand correctly, u can't use the align to stage tool and that will most likely screw things up, why don't you just use the edit multiple frames option, select everything and shift it manually.
you can use the rulers and grid lines if needed but i'd say that's ur best bet.
your html should look more or less like this between the body tags - with your swf names and id in instead of these.

Then it will display 100%.

If, however, the borders in your swf are not the same size as the stage, you will have a problem with this.

<body bgcolor="#999999" topmargin="0" leftmargin="0">

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase=",0,0,0" width="100%" height="100%" id="yoursite" align="left">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="yoursite.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#999999" />
<embed src="yoursite.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#999999" width="100%" height="100%" name="yoursite" align="left" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="" />

if the borders of your swf do not match the stage borders (ie, they are way out), then line them up. If you need to do it, make the stage bigger, with right click on empty part of work area, choose preferences, and change the no. pixel width and height. Be aware though it resizes from x position 0, y position 0 downwards and to the right, so you may need to move stuff to fit it - depnding on how complex your swf is.

i'm sorry I dont think I was being clear enough about what I am saying.  It is the border within the flash movie that is offcentered.  Not the movie within the borders of the html page that I am wanting to needs to move a little to the seems to be ok height and width wise.  the page is 
blu has it there - just one more thing - if anything is positioned with action script you will need to change the x and y positions too, to match it all up:)
