This cannot be done with CSS. You must use the <object> element from html to insert a flash object. You can google for that.

Absolutely true from drhowarddrfine - but I would say if it's just an animated image that doesn't actually do anything then use an animated GIF (which you can export directly from Flash) and set that as the background using CSS.

Any BLOBS (Binary Large OBjectS) cannot be set in the background using CSS. However, you could do a clever workaround...

Split your page into two <div>'s - one to contain the Flash object and one to contain your actual page content. Then use this CSS:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. div#flashcontainer {
  2.     z-index:1;
  3.     opacity:100%;
  4.     position:absolute;
  5. }
  7. div#contentcontainer {
  8.     z-index:2;
  9.     opacity:50%;
  10.     position:absolute;
  11. }
This will create 2 div's, one to hold your Flash animation and one to hold your actual page content. The content placeholder will be semi-transparent and directly on top of the Flash container so the Flash will show through as a "background".

Hope it helps.
