    Question flash and css

    maybe a stupid question but does anybody know if css supports also other files as backgrounds? Everybody knows you can choose a background image (such as gif,jpg and png) but is there a way to put an flash movie inside or maybe audio?

    Or do i have to work with templates to update the content of the divs?

    Well within ACSS you can trigger audio files though you'll find that most browser cannot handle ACSS.

    Since Flash in an external object rather than an standard web image file you might get some strange results.

    I don't think you'll get any results, really.

    Like Robert said, it's not a native format: Flash is drawn by an external program instead of the browser. As such, it's probably only called by <object> or <embed> (or if it's called directly--i.e. by URL and not as a part of an HTML page). Also, most browsers don't seem to draw anything over plugins (like a headline positioned over an <object>) for some reason.

    Dave, you might also want to check into the changes in how MSIE will handle plugins in the future, as a result of the Elos case.
