Flash Banner Issues (2 clicks, click to activate)

I'm having some problems with a flash banner on the URL given.  

1.) Reports of click to activate when using IE 6.0

I've seen solutions on this problem and I think I can overcome it (using document.write was given).

2.) I have to click (gives focus?) then click the banner again for it to change location to the target site.  This seems to only happen in IE 6,7 and not firefox

I'm not sure where to start on #2.  It kinda makes sense that if the "object" doesn't have focus it doesn't receive the onClick event...there must be some standard way of using flash banners as I see them all the time.

Thanks,
Dustin

Try swfobject for embedding your flash movies.  I use this for everything I do.  It has a lot of nice features such as custom messages for users if they need to install flash, requiring certain versions etc...
