Hello experts
I have an HTML page and I have placed a wmode transparent flash movie above it.
Looks fine !
Trouble is that HTML part behind the flash (like links) are disabled by flash.

Transparent Flash captures all clicks events and I cannot interact with HTML any more.

Is there a way to make :
display flash above HTML (I will show there some animations etc...) AND make the HTML interactive ?

    Try using z-index attribute for HTML Container /Flash Object

    z-index helps to set flash on the top : that is what I have done.
    Trouble is that transparent zones of flash disable the HTML that is behind.
