I am trying to position a Flash "movie" on an HTML page, and the issue is how to position the Flash object reliably.  You can see a sample link here:

If I try CSS position:absolute, the Flash object will be in a fixed position but the right-hand column where it is supposed to appear is not totally stable in position.

If I try CSS position:relative, the Flash obect will show inside the <td> tags, but because of the leaf motion will stretch the <td> area too much.

Is there a solution that will position, say, the lower left corner of the Flash object at precisly the lower left corner of the containing <td> tag, and that will also allow the upper portion of the Flash to be layered so that the moving leaf can pass over the page heading on the way to where it stops?  This solution would be perfect since it would deal with slight changes in HTML page width, and would allow the leaf to float down over the existing page.
