Hello,

Attached is a screen shot, I am trying to position a star burst above a flash file positioned relative to the containing frame.  

I've tried adding a z-index to the table and to the flash containing div less than that of the star div, doesnt seem to work; any thoughts how I can position this star div relative to the white containing box and above the flash file?

Thanks
//CSS

#star {

position:relative;

left:1px;

z-index:100;

}

 

// HTML

<div id="jbcontent">

<div id="star">

<img src="templates/FW153/images/star_large.png" class="normal" />

</div>

<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="720" style="margin:-.8em 0 0 0;">

 <tbody>

  <tr valign="top">

       <td valign="top" style="padding:0 0 10px 10px;">

         <span class="intro_text">FindWhere transforms advanced GPS technology into an easy-to-use tracking<br>

         and locating service  putting </span><span class="intro_teal">peace of mind</span><span class="intro_text"> into the palm of your hand. </span></td>

  </tr>

  <tr>

    <td><div align="center" style="margin:-.24em 0 -.5em 0;">

      <script type="text/javascript">

AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0','width','905','height','425','src','templates/FW153/flash/fw_intro','quality','high','pluginspage','http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer','movie','templates/FW153/flash/fw_intro' ); //end AC code

Hello,

Try adding

<param name="wmode" value="transparent" /> to the object parameters AND wmode="transparent" to the embed tag.

Next,

css:

#jbcontent {
position:relative
}
#star {
position:absolute;
left:200px;
top:200px;
z-index:100
}

Let me know how that goes
