I have a DHTML Menu and multiple flash objects on a site. When the DHTML Menu is selected (which rolls over the flash movie) it makes the flash movie disappear entirely.
This only happens in Safari (5.1.7). It works in Firefox and IE 9. I have read quite a bit on this topic and most suggestions refer to the wmode and changing from transparent to opaque....which has been done.
If anyone has suggestions on how I could tweak the html code, css code or any settings in flash during the publishing of the swf, it would be greatly appreciated.
I have attached a few screen shots of what the page looks like in safari and in IE.

<!-- This param tag prompts users with Flash Player 6.0 r65 and higher to download the latest version of Flash Player. Delete it if you don’t want users to see the prompt. -->
