Hello, I would like to know how I would create a page that has a flash movie placed above the html content. I've googled for this but can't find anything that really works.

As far as I know the flash movie would have to be in a layer above the page content, unless there is a better way of doing it.

Thank you.

you mean physically on top? or visually closer to the top of the page?

You can do it by placing your flash in a div above your content and using a z-index. You also MUST set your flash wmode to transparent. A word of warning though... If there are links under the flash layer you will not be able to click on them (even if the flash is transparent) Here's an example so you can see how to do it http://addsomespark.com/overunder/

How do I set up my page like that? I've been trying to do but can't get it right.

I've put my flash movie in a div tag and set the z-index to 2, but it doesn't work. I just need to know how I set up the html.
