Using Flash background behind HTML


I'm developing a site that uses a Flash background behind some HTML drop down menus. I used this technique (pulled from another post on this site):

Before the <object> tag in the published html file, right after the <body> tag, add this:
<div style="position: absolute; left: 0px; top: 0px; z-index: 0;">
Then add </div> right after </object>

Your content(reg html) should start right after that, but before your content put:
<div style="position: absolute; left: 0px; top: 0px; z-index: 5;">
Then after your content, before the </body> tag add: </div>

This will lay all your static content on top of your flash movie.


I works great except the client wants the page to be centered. Any suggestions?

Try with
<div style="position: absolute; center: 0px; top: 0px; z-index: 5;">
