DHTML javascipt-based navigation structure and flash: how to set the layer?

P: n/a
Hi, everybody,

I have developed a very nice javascript-based navigation structure. My
customer wants to have a flash film on his very first site which
already has to have this navigation.
And now the effect: Whenever the flash film is running, the navigation
submenus are not displayed ABOVE this flash film, but BEHIND it.
As far as I have tried, there is no way to influence this behaviour
with the "z-index" and different values.
Is there any other way to make the navigation submenu seen or - in
other words - is there a way to put the flash film "a layer back"?

Sincerely
Markus Mohr

Yes, with IE/Win since I think Flash 6 and with Netscape 7 since I think
Flash Flash 6 r65 you can use
<object ...>
<param name="wmode" value="opaque">
<embed wmode="opaque"
then Flash obeys CSS z-index.
See the demo at

Of course the problem is that wmode settings are restricted to Windows
and even there it doesn't work for instance with Opera 7.

Thank you very much, your help brought me immediately to my aim.
Unfortunately, Opera 7 - as you stated -does not do the job.
