flash and z-index ... :(

P: n/a
Hey Guys,

I dont know if this is the correct "group" and if not apologies, could
someone point me in the right direction.

Page can be found here: (
>Health warning clicking the gray box will make it dissapear
I have an absolutley positioned div on a page, that page isnt a page
that i personally can edit. The div is created on the fly as JS. (The
idea is will be an ad) This div has a z-index of 899 or something
there abouts.

On the page i am testing this on i have a flash movie that for some
reason goes straight through my div and is always there. I cant seem
to overlap it with the z-index. I've read a few pages online that
suggest this is because flash players go top of the layers no matter
what and to fix set the <param wmode transparent>
( but the site
already has this and it still goes through.

The page i am working on has the flash within an Iframe, is this maybe
causing the issue.

The flash is generated at this url:
as you can see its horrible JS stuff, but in there you will/should
notice that there is infact wmode stuff.

any help would be very very much appreciated.
