    You could use JavaScript to hide the Flash movie.

    Unfortunately, there is no way to make elements display overlapping flash movies.

    You can do it easily in Win/IE using the iframe shim -- http://dotnetjunkies.com/WebLog/jkin...07/21/488.aspx -- the technique is so robust it works for almost anything - flash, java applets, embedded media players; the only thing I can't get it to work for is the Adobe SVG plugin

    For other browsers ... well there are techniques published by Macromedia that claim to make DHTML element able to go above Flash without such hacks -- http://www.macromedia.com/cfusion/kn...fm?id=tn_14201 -- only problem is, they don't really work.

    Joe King's technique is really innovative. Thanks for the links.

    Any solution that only fixes a problem seen in multiple browsers in one browser isn't worth using.

    Do you really want to force people to use Internet Exploiter?

    You have a good point Kravvitz. I hate it when I have to run IE. But I still think what Joe did was innovative

    I'm not saying it isn't innovative. I'm just saying it should only be deployed in environments where the uninformed powers-that-be require that IE be used. In other words, in companies with intranet web servers and management that doesn't understand computers very well.

    I agree, but what are you gonna do - implement a solution that only works in IE, or not implement a solution for anyone at all? You might as well do what you can.

    If it's a real issue, the best thing to do is redesign the page, to avoid the co-incidence of Flash and DHTML

    The point is to remove the need for a solution, since there is no cross-browser solution for this.

    Yes, that is the only reasonable option.
