Flash Goto's in Javascript

Hi Folks,

I've been spending a lot of time looking for a way to connect my HTML pages
to their embedded flash files. Ideally, I would like a way to issue
"gotoandX" commands via javascript enabled buttons.

I've looked into named anchors, but I don't like the idea that the user's
back button is then constrained to a history of accessed anchors -- in
other words, I want the operation to be totally transparent to the user.

Currently I have a setup that allows me to initialize playing of a clip,
but I can't directly reference any frames or - ideally - named frame IDs.

How realistic is this? Can it be done, or am I looking in the wrong
direction...?

Any and all help you have is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
David

There are other ways, but these are a good place to start.
