Hi experts,

On internet exlporer, all activex controls appear behind html elements. I tough the best way to avoid this is adding enough space between your menu and the flash movie.

Make sure you select the proper wmode in flash:

And make sure you set the correct z-index's in CSS (i.e. z-index of 1 on flash, and 2 on the menu)

I tried making the background transparent in my flash movie by setting the window mode to transparent in the publishing settings but it didn't work. I'm working on IE7 but it even doesn't work with firefox.
I checked the menu layer z-index and it was set to z-index:99 which should be above all the layers.
