I've struggled to make a flash object for the header of my new site I've started then I managed to pull it off in IE but not in FF. I've used the in the code. Here is my code for the object and below is the link to my site. (PS I know the flash isn't good but just trying to get the transparency working first)

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="425" height="282">
                <param name="movie" value="flash.swf" />
                <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
                <!--[if !IE]>-->
                <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="flash.swf" width="425" height="282">
                <!--<![endif]-->
                    <a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer">
                        <img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" />                    </a>
                <!--[if !IE]>-->
                </object>
                <!--<![endif]-->
            </object>

Add the following parameter to the EMBED tag:

wmode="transparent"

IE pulls from PARAMS , Firefox pulls from EMBED attributes.

Thanks for the reply. I had read that and tried it however I don't really know how to add the embed tag to what I have there now. It adds another flash. Can you tell me how to do this? I used the swfobject generator I think to get the code I have. (I say, I think now because I tried so many new things in testing)

Thanks

OMG, how does this look in your browsers. I didn't get that embed in there but played more with the generator and I think it looks ok. Would you look at it for me in your browsers? Thanks allot :)
