Flash movie blocking menus

Hi Experts

I have a situation that I hope you can help me with.

I am creating a website and the navigation bar is the popup behaviour in Dreamweaver 8.

The problem is that some of it is blocked by the flash movie on the same page. If you go to http://clt.martincotterill.co.uk and place your mouse on the 'Family Services' menu item you'll see what I mean.

If I use an ordinary image the problem doesn't arise.

I've tried using th 'z-index' property in CSS but to no avail.

Any ideas?

Regards

Martin

try adding the parameter "wmode" value="transparent" to your flash script
if that doesn't work, try "opaque" instead of "transparent"

Excellent!

Works perfectly. Either "transparent" or "opaque" works fine.

Many thanks
